MySQL recovery utility for any instance of corruption

In order to start your MySQL server, you used to type the whole path like: "C:\mysql\bin\mysql123" in your DOS prompt. However, sometimes, the MySQL server fails to start with this usual command and the reason may be any possible case of database corruption or damage. In such a case, you cannot be able to access your database and need any MySQL repair utility to repair the troubled MySQL database and recover the data thereof.
In case of any corruption, you may encounter an error message at the start of the MySQL server, which may be as below:

"Default storage engine is not available"

Moreover, in order to resolve the error, if you reinstall the MySQL server without removing the data directory, the server starts normally. However, to your utter dismay, while accessing the any database table, you may encounter another error message on the screen as below:

"ERROR 1146 (42S02): Table 'Tablename' doesn't exist"

Note: Here, the 'Tablename' is the name of the table, you have tried to access.

The above error message appears each time you try to access the table. Even, you cannot be able to resolve the error with the 'mysqlcheck' utility.

In general, the reason behind the occurrence of the error messages is the corruption of the MySQL database, which can have been caused due to an improper system shut down, virus/malware intrusion or any other application malfunction etc.

In order to resolve the problem, you need to repair MySQL with the following command:

Repair Table Tablename
However, with severe corruption, the above command does not able to repair the database and you need to look for any valid backup to restore your seemingly lost MySQL database.
