Mongo DB in Windows: Recovery after improper shutdown

Simple Tip:
When you encounter a problem when Mongo DB will not start up,
Go to the Data folder ( see the data folder here ) and delete the LOCK file. Then restart the MongoDB and check the results. If it still fails, delete all files in the data folder. Yes, but only do this on a Development or Test system.

To properly shutdown MongoDB, use the “Ctrl+C” command in the Windows console where MongoDB is running.
