Re: Restoring incremental backups with revisions missing

Repository was horrendosuly corrupted (transaction table errors, copies
table errors, then broken revisions....), and i only had a really really
old backup :-(
So after a few more corrupted repositories over the next day on BDB4.1, I
upgraded our server to v1.1.4, and a new fsfs repository, which so far
seems pretty darn good! Ultra fast, and no corruptions yet... looks like
Berkeley DB had just thrown a wobbly and wouldn't sort itself out!

I'm acutally in South Africa for work right now, so cant see the
repository back in the UK, but nobody has screamed too loud yet, so it
seems to be holding up :-)

Shame we've lost six months history, but that teaches me not to do
backups! Have since set up weekly full backups and nightly incremental
backups.... hopefully they wont ever be needed!!

Thanks for the offer of help! But I think the repository was lost beyond
all hope....
