HELP !!! corrupted llb

Hi,
for a certain reason I had to kill the Labview task via the NT-Task-Manager.
Now it seems that my *.llb is corrupted. Thrying to open it, Labview says
that it cannot list the llb-content.
Is there any way to repair my llb or to extract the vi-files out of it.
Thanks for any help

The first thing you may want to do is to look in your temp
directory for files that end in .llb and are similar in size
to your LLB. The LV save operation uses temp files to try
really hard not to lose anything during save. After doing
that, you may want to run a disk check program and make
sure that your disk directory structure is OK or correct
it if it needs it. NT is so much better than earlier versions
of Windows, but corruptions can still occur. You may also
want to consi
der using NTFS as the file system format
because it is much less prone to corruptions.

Finally, if you don't have a temp file and fixing the disk
directory system doesn't fix it, you can send it to NI technical
support. They may be able to salvage some or all of the LLB.

Hi,
thanks. Next time I'll look inside my temp-directory first before rebooting
the PC (rebooting deletes the temp directory in our system).
Fortunately, I was able to reconstruct my program. It was a little bit long
winded but now it works again. I think sending it to NI would have lasted
longer than the two days of work I spent.
Thanks again
