I have deleted SQL Server database from the network.
Then I created a database with same name.

Can I get back the old database ?
(will the newly created file replace the old file ? is there any other way to get back the database
through hex editor,...etc , )

A reply will be highly appreciated

Thanks & Best Regards,

What exactly do you mean by "deleted"?

Did you execute a DROP DATABASE command from Query Analyzer? Did you delete the database using Enterprise Manager? Did you delete the database files?

If you have a database backup, you can RESTORE the database to a new name. Books online has details.

You will probably want to run RESTORE FILELISTONLY first to get the logical names from the backup device/file. Again, see BOL for details.
