I don't think so, Mikkel.  I can't find anything.  The whole of the tests only 
mentioned one read error.  I reckon that the corruption is right at the 
beginning, where the boot sector should be written.

Ah well, from what I've seen I think specialist help would be able to recover 
the data, but at great expense.  I think the guy who has lost his data will 
just have to do his work all over again.  There's another one who has learned 
the true value of regular backups <g>
