A possible fix for invalid sibling links on a hard drive
Authored by: dantebbutt on Apr 10, '07 12:35:04PM
Thanks for this hint, which would have worked perfectly -- except for the fact that I ran out of hard disk space while rebuilding the catalog file (at least that is my interpretation of what happened and several hours spent trying various things). I found mention that this technique only works if there is enough disk space here:

So, now I have:
(a) an unmounted HDD
(b) an unrecognisable catalog file

Can anyone recommend how I can fix the catalog sufficiently to MOUNT the HDD volume then erase some unneeded files. Once this is done, I imagine I should be able to rebuild the catalog successfully and fix the sibling link problems.

Thanks
