“Sql Server Msg 8978 – missing a reference from previous page”

Msg 8978, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Table error: Object ID 782621111, index ID 1, partition ID 72057512123039744, alloc unit ID 72057594050433404 (type In-row data). Page (1:9902) is missing a reference from previous page (1:12151). Possible chain linkage problem.
The repair level on the DBCC statement caused this repair to be bypassed.

Actually repair_rebuild is the minimum repair level for these kind of errors. When I tried REPAIR_REBUILD, this cost me 50GB error log for a table of size less than 1 GB.

Msg 1101, Level 17, State 12, Line 1
Could not allocate a new page for database ‘TuitionaffordableDB’ because of insufficient disk space in filegroup ‘PRIMARY’. Create the necessary space by dropping objects in the filegroup, adding additional files to the filegroup, or setting autogrowth on for existing files in the filegroup.

The only way to resolve this problem was to recreate the index. While recreating you will find that the PK has duplicate rows. So clean them.
