The SQL Server log file viewer not only helps in detecting corruption roots in SQL database files but also helps in forensic analysis of a SQL Server log file to a greater extent. My experience of working with SQL transaction log analyzer was awesome as it helped in resolving a case by analyzing the SQL Server transaction logs thoroughly. I would suggest this tool to all investigative authorities as well.

Stephen, Australia


I had some table's in my database which was accessible to many users. While I was making a report I queried records from my tables and I found that there are some records which are missing from my tables. I tried some manual solutions but it took long time to get the details of user who have deleted data from my table. At last I tried this SQL transaction log viewer and tracked all users who deleted records from my database tables.
