How to Resolve SQL Error 8929 Easily?

Microsoft SQL Server is a well known Relational Database Management System that is used to store huge volumes of data in large databases and tables. Data gets stored in the text nodes in the rows of the table and each node is indicated by the parent node. The next nodes get created in the form of Heap format or B tree structure. But there are instances when the data stored in these text nodes gets damaged or corrupt. This results in the occurrence of a number of error messages, one amongst them being the SQL error 8929.

The SQL error 8929 is the result of corruption in the database making the entire data stored in the database inaccessible. The major reasons for the occurrence of the error as follows:

Server: Msg 8944, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 Table error: Object ID 389576426, index ID 0, page (1:18836), row 34. Test (ColumnOffsets + (int)sizeof (COLOFF) <= (nextRec - pRec)) failed. Values are 31 and 29."

The aforementioned error message appears when the PFS page cannot be read successfully because of the physical or logical damage of the database. In such a situation, you can run the DBCC CHECKDB command and get rid of the SQL error 8928. The error could also be the result of hardware problems. To fix the error you can follow the steps mentioned below:

  • Get rid of any hardware related problems: Check the MS SQL server Error logs and the Windows Application logs to find out if the SQL error 8928 is the result of hardware problems.
  • Run hardware diagnostics and swap the hardware to locate the real cause of the error.
  • Execute the DBCC CHECKDB command with the repair clause.

However, if the error is not fixed with the help of all the aforementioned steps then it means that the database is severely damaged. Use efficient MDF repair software to repair the database and get rid of the SQL error 8928.
