Parsing data out of MYD files?
Posted by: Dino LoDico

I have a collection of MYD and MYI files from a severely crashed database from a vbulletin web forum.

Many of the files are filled with zeros, which makes it unrepairable.

However, there are a few files that contain valuable data. The first file we're looking into is called thread.myd, which contains information about threads posted on the forum. We're trying to write a parser to pull out the important information, and later write a program that can re-enter said information into a database.

The problem that we're running into is that the format of the data in thread.myd isn't totally consistent.

Before I got into detail, is there anyone out there that would be able to help us pull the data out of this file?
