This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

The backup tool.

Seriously. if you have corrupt data, it is corrupt...

It cannot be recovered from the DB file - go back to your latest backup, apply it, roll forward the transaction logs.

Try to run Run DBCC checkdb with repair_allow_data_loss. if it doesn't provide any suitable result then try to restore database from last backup. otherwise the Free SQL .mdf recovery software is best option for recovering the database see here:
