Errors in old !NewsDir

From:Richard Mellish Date:14 Jul 2021 11:59
Replies: Re: Errors in old !NewsDir (Richard Mellish)

Some years ago, to keep the size of !NewsDir down, I occasionally made a 
copy, deleted everything up to a certain date from the working copy and 
deleted everything after that date in the other copy, which I then saved 
in a new directory. When I want to access the old stuff I run an Obey file 
which unsets some OS variables and resets them to point to the old 
!NewsDir.

That has normally worked OK, but today when I loaded my 2009-2010 !NewsDir 
and tried to open one of the Groups I got a Not Found for the relevant 
Overview file.

I then ran !GroupChck, which reported loads of discrepancies: see the 
appended output.

I tried Messenger > Choices > Group management > Repair, but that doesn't 
see those that are "not in groups" and for some that it can see it gives 
an error that it can't open Spool.x.y.z.IndexV2
