Microsoft SQL Server holds all the transaction records in the form of a log file. This log file is an LDF file that can be used to analyze all the transaction queries performed on the database. A user can read all the actions that take place over the database like Update, Delete, and Insert.
The MDF file is the primary database file or Master database file of the SQL server. It contains all the data like columns, rows, fields, etc created by user and administrator. The software can easily restore the database from the MDF file and can restore it to the database.
The LDF file contains all the transaction records. In these transaction records, all the queries performed over the database are stored. It also includes all the information like time, Login Name, etc. A user can recover all the transaction queries like Update, Insert and Delete from the LDF file.
SQL Server provides an option to define constraints for the tables. These constraints are like Column level constraints and Table-level constraints. A user can use this SQL Log Analyzer utility to save the constraints like Unique Key, Primary Key, Foreign Key, etc.
