in reply to Recovering from a corrupt storable file

By "corrupted", I expect you mean "cut off halfway through writing the file", in which case, you've deleted about half the info.

I presume your script doesn't write to a temporary file and ensure it has finished successfully before copying it over the real one? Have you talked to your server guys about pulling out the backup tapes for the last week and rebuilding/restarting from there?
