Results suggest database corrupted; how to deal with it?

Hi All,

I'm running MySQL 5.0.15-nt running over WinXP-Pro/SP2. The following
group of commands and responses suggests to me that my installation of
MySQL is corrupted. Is there anyway I can get rid of the offending
database "depot_test " short of un/reinstalling MySQL?

Thanks in Advance,

mysqluse depot_test;
Database changed
mysqlalter table products rename xxx;
ERROR 1146 (42S02): Table 'depot_test.pro ducts' doesn't exist
mysqlshow tables
| Tables_in_depot _test |
| products |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

mysqldrop table products;
ERROR 1051 (42S02): Unknown table 'products'

I forgot to mention that I first tried to drop the database:

mysqldrop database depot_test;
ERROR 1051 (42S02): Unknown table 'products'

That's what got me started on trying to remove the products table from
the database.

OK, I found the databases in the data folder of my MySQL installation
and deleted them with Windows Explorer command. My system seems
healthy now.

I'm using Access 2002, as front-end and back-end as well: 1) I faced database corrupted problems, when more than 1 user edit concurrently. I'm using All-records Locking, and open-exclusively as default. But, still face the same problem: Database corrupted! (But, it allows to be repaired) 2) I found that the relationship linkage between those related tables(which corrupted) was disconnected/lost after problem (1)

Hi We need some advice: We are thinking of upgrading our Access database from Access 2000 to Access 2004. How stable is MS Office 2003? (particularly Access 2003). We are just a small company and this is a big decision for us(!) It's not just the money it's committing to an new version of Access!

We're developing a java app and are using postgres as the database. On our dev server I started the app, closed it, but the java process was still open so I killed it, which caused the above error. I've had to do this in the past but have not had this happen before. I've searched the archives and found a message/reply from Andrew Sullivan about this which implies that it may be more a file system problem. We're using postgresql 7.4.1 on a...

I have made copies of the corrupted database so that I could try to repair and still have a corrupted copy available. When I try to repair , it...
