    First thing to avoid is looking for free software to do such thing as they will only provide you a preview of your database and will charge you to recover them.

    Follow the instructions mentioned in the below link to know how you can compact and repair it -

    You can try to Compact and Repair your corrupt database. This is the very first solution you must try. If it doesn't work, this means the database is severely corrupted and can't be fixed by MS Access. In such situation you can use some third-party MS Access repair or recovery software.

    So, you are a database administrator and you don't have backups from a few hours ago, or last night? Because that would be the perfect solution.

    Depending on your system(s) and configuration you might be able to access a previous version.
