Convert SQL Server MDF to MySQL online

Add file

Input file

Our API uses a .MDF and .LDF file as input. The .MDF file is the Microsoft SQL Server database file that contains the data and the .LDF file is the log file. If you closed your database in a clean way, you only need the .MDF file. If you database was not properly closed, you need the .MDF and the related .LDF file (for example test.mdf and test_log.ldf).
