I am running with a Recovered Database -- Now What

We have a very active development environment which has allowed our company to make great strides in a short period of time.


Unfortunately, we have had a few lockups and crashes over the years, and they may be catching up to us. The FM Server ( Advanced) has dumped its core (so to speak) twice this week. It was there, and then it wasn't.


I realize the Recover Process tells you not to rely on the recovered file, but it is just not possible to get back to an old backup all the time.


What can I do to determine if the problem is with by DB file(s), and is there a utility that essentially creates a new set of data tables, layouts and scripts from a recovered database which I can use to generate a clone-like import target?


Thanks for any help
