Re: FSFS : Malformed representation header

At some point during the commit process things got wedged and corrupted your revision. Or the drive(s) that house your data has a bad sector or something. There are not many options here that are 'free'. As far as the free options:

1) Replace the revision with an empty revision. However, if you have any revision after the bad one that refers to the bad one, you're out of luck with this option.

2) Dump the repository up to the previous revision of the bad one. Then dump all the revisions after the bad one. Load them into a new repository. This has the same problem as 1) in that if there is any reference to the bad one, your out of luck.

Those are your 'free' options. Now Collabnet and probably Polarion can help you, but this will cost. I know Collabnet can fix this, as they did ours. Collabnet is in North America and Polarion is in Europe. Each have their own pricing schemes and when situations like this happen and the repository is 'mission critical', their services are worth their costs.
