I am using VSTS (Visual Studio Team System 2008 Test Edition) Tool for Load Test, The results will stored in trx file. When we open the trx file, it will open in VSTS tool and reads the data from the database LoadTest mdf file & displays the results in VSTS tool.

Data inside the LoadTest mdf file was some how got deleted and my Load test results data was actually stored in that file. Can anyone give me an idea how to retrieve the data which got deleted. Is there any chance of getting those results back, I mean like any recovery software which will help me to get back my results or mdf file.

    Hi anil_d,

    Did you take any backups of the LoadTest database?

    Without a backup to restore from the chances of retrieving your data are most likely slim.

    You could try a data recovery tool specific to SQL Server but I do not have any recommendations and have not used any products myself.

    I apologise I can't be of more help.
