A colleague has two month's worth of work stuck on an 80MB hard disk
on his 1186 which is currently unreadable. It won't boot,
and Othello cannot bring it Online. Check Drive finds several bad
pages, but cannot enter them. Running the Confidence Test in Offline Diagnostics 1.3e fails with the message
Physical Volume needs Scavenging
Failure code: 6
Error code: 82
On entry to the Bad Page Utility/Scavenger Tool, the message
"Unable to read Pilot data structures - Needs scavenging or
is displayed. Attempting to display the bad page table fails.
Attempting to run the Scavenger dies with 0935.
Anybody out there any relevant experience which offers a way of
getting any data off this disk, or is it reformatting time for sure?
