In all normal cases isamchk should be able to recover all your data.
In some extrema cases isamchk may however find information that looks
like a properly deleted block (even if it isn't) and in this case it
may be fooled. In this case you may be able to fix it it with:
isamchk -r -e table_name
If this doesn't help and you don't have a backup + an update log, the
only option is to ftp the table to
and we will take a look at this.
Unfortunately this has to wait until we come back from USA on
