Recovering the active file is unfortunately hard. I'm not sure of a good
way to do that. You can recover the other databases with makehistory, and
then use ctlinnd renumber to fix the *numbers* in the active file, but the
list of groups that you carry may need to be reconstructed first by hand.

Please send questions to the list rather than mailing me directly.
