I have inherited a netware 4.11 system. Yesterday, it failed and when vrepair is done, everything looks ok. Then it fails to open NDS. Tried to dspreair it and it fails too.
there seems to be no backup of nds files that can be restored. We seem to have a backup files in the _netware folder. Tried to rename the .nds to .xxx and tried to copy over the 000 to .nds with no luck. It appears that the attrib T will let us.  Is there any way to ren the .000 files and see if they can open the database?
