I have a NT server and one of the volume suddenly become unreadable. The
system said something like "corrupt directiory" and the whole hard disk
cannot be recognized by the disk administrator program. Could anyone please
tell me how to save the files in the volume. I believe there is no bad
sector in the harddisk.

Thanks in advance!

Believe has nothing to do with it. Verify it. Also, if a whole partition
'woes' *often* the cause is a bad sector, or a bad/corrupt partition table,
or a bad/corrupt boot sectors. Again, *often* these matters can be
corrected/fixed.

Our DiskPatch demo can help determine if the cause is any of the above. If
you have questions on the demo version of the software, you are welcome to
post a message in our support forum.

OT, but a) make good regular full backups of everything and b) use hardware
SCSI RAID only on any server. Also - this is a Win2000 group, not NT - the
difference isn't relevant for your question, but keep it in mind for the
future.

That said back to a) - hope it's true.
