Ailing HP340 system

In my experience, this sounds pretty serious.  When I
had similar problems I would automatically back up
my files, re-initialize the hard drive, and reinstall the
software.  It takes about an hour to complete.  I don't
understand the source of your hesitation but I'd bet
it's the only fix short of buying a new hard drive.

If you follow that route make sure you leave directories
0 and 1 free.  The operating system uses those directories
for administrative purposes.

If you have problems I found Linda Turner at BD to be very
helpful.  The first time I had this kind of problem she walked
me through it successfully.

The Consort 32 system software on our HP340 workstation
is misbehaving.  It loses files and directories, will not
access certain directories and has lost volume #46.
We can still run Lysis II and all the file utilities
but can only store data files in one directory (#11:/APP/MAST/)

Can we get things fixed without re-initialising and re-installing
all the software?

Would be glad of any assistance.
