How to Get Rid of SQL Error 8930?

SQL Server is a Relational Database management system that is used for keeping records and managing them efficiently. The application manages huge volumes of data by storing them into large databases. However, this data can become inaccessible due to database corruption and give rise to a number of error messages like the SQL error 8930.

SQL Server is provided with the inbuilt utility of DBCC CHECKDB command but there are certain situations when even this command fails to fix the corruption issues. When you run this utility you may encounter different error messages. Sometimes you may encounter an error message like the following:

“Table error: Object ID O_ID1, index ID I_ID1 cross-object chain linkage. Page P_ID1 points to P_ID2 in object ID O_ID2, index ID I_ID2."

An error like this can make the data inaccessible and sometimes also result in severe data loss situations. The most common reasons for the occurrence of the error are incorrect reference to the page_ID which is mainly caused because of page header corruption or virus attack. However, the error may also be the result of hardware problems or the application not functioning properly.

To fix SQL error 8930 you need to first of all check the hardware components attached to the system or run the hardware diagnostics to check for any faulty hardware device. Swap the faulty ones with new ones.

And if there are none of them then you need to repair the damaged database. Since the database cannot be repaired with the help of the DBCC CHECKDB command you need to use a third party MDF repair tool. A reliable and third party tool can not only repair the database but also ensure complete SQL recovery. Such a tool is essential to be used when the inbuilt tool fails to recover and restore the data stored in the database.
