IBSurgeon is glad to announce the new version of Firebird and InterBase database recovery tool: FirstAID 3.7.

FirstAID 3.7 introduces new approaches in the database recovery and many new features:

  • export data from a corrupted database directly to the empty database with the same structure
  • borrow metadata from an old good database copy (or FBDataGuard repository) to recover extremely corrupted databases
  • faster analysis and recovery of very big databases
  • free preview of data in the corrupted databases: what you see is what you [will] get
  • 2 levels of recovery: fast in-place fix with FirstAID Direct or thorough export with FirstAID Extractor
  • Support of Firebird 1.0-2.5 and InterBase 4.x, 6.x, 7.1, 7.5, 2007, 2009, XE, XE3
  • Improved licensing

We recommend upgrading to FirstAID 3.7 for all users of FirstAID 1.0-2.x (users of 3.x have already received upgrades).
