look for tools that allow you to find deleted files (google it, there are lots of them). Use those tools to find the .mdf and .ldf files and rebuilt their directory entries. Then, try to attach those files as a new database.

Good luck!

If you have deleted the database file then you need to look for data recovery software not mdf repair software. A repair software repairs the corrupt or damaged file not recover the lost or deleted file.

Was the database offline by any chance when you dropped it? If so, there may be a possibility the files exist, have you checked on the drives?

If you deleted all the database files and haven't backed them up anywhere the only hope would be to stop using the server immediately and try some file system recovery software that can recover deleted files
