Cannot RECOVER to a network drive
You cannot use the RECOVER command on a network drive. Pause the
fileserver and then issue a RECOVER command again.
Warning - directory full
xxx file(s) recovered
There is not enough space in the directory. Copy some of its
files onto another disk and then reissue the RECOVER command.
When you use RECOVER, it creates a new file with the same
name that contains all the data in the original file except the
data that was located in bad sectors. Also, RECOVER will not
recover files that have been erased. If you use RECOVER on a disk
that has a bad sector in its directory, each file name will have
the form FILEnnn.REC, with the number nnn indicating the order in
which the files were recovered. You will have to rename each file
on the recovered disk by determining the contents of each file
and naming it again. Wildcards may be used, but only the first
matching file name will be used. Once you have used RECOVER,
there is no way to reverse the recovery process.
