 FMPRo server crash bad blocks

I am having crashes on Filemaker pro serve 3.0v3 on NT 4.0
7 databases
and one always crashes with an error of writing bad block error, to one
of the databases, and it happens to be the larges 88MB.
it freezes all of the databases I have to force a shutdown and restart
the server and/or restart the services. and on opening the databases
again on the server sometimes the large file is damamged.

I have another server that has 70 databases and does not have an issue
like this, but none of the databases are quite as large all under 30MB.

does anyone have any ideas concerning this problem?

Thanks

Yea...you have a badly corrupted datase!

Export the records to text (merge format works well).  Grab your backup
empty clone, you do have one right, and import your data in.  Be sure to
reset any serial fields etc.

Priority #1 is to get this thing off the server before you corrupt any
more databases with the crashes.

This is a problem with your computer, not with FileMaker.
Use some utility to scan your hard disk for corruption and for
bad blocks.

It is very rare that a disk drive develops a bad block. Bad blocks are
more often than not mapped out when the drive is formatted. If not then
Norton or Scan Disk will map them out later.

FileMaker is displaying a generic alert.

The simple fact is that the file is now damaged, and all the Norton
recovery or scans, WILL NOT now repair the file.

Follow my suggestion, and of course run Norton and/or Scan Disk, as a
preventative measure to prevent directory problems later.

But it's too late for that now!
