Our StarTalk hard drive went down the other day. My companie's phone guy recommended buying a new StarTalk box (at $6,000). I (the IT guy) said hey...let me look at the hard drive. Well now I have it on my bench and have recovered the boot track and MIGHT be able to salvage the data. It'd be great to transfer it all to the new WD 21200 hard drive I found. Unfortunately I don't know what the 'real' file structure looks like for the system (what files go where). I can tell that it was running OS2 and I can see the individual mailbox files, but that's about it.

In either event, I know that we don't need the entire new grey module box (at $6,000) even if we needed to purchase the software to re-load it....what are my REAL options here?

I mean, is there somewhere that lists the file structure? Is it possible to get the software so it can be loaded (via hyper terminal or something) with our original RAW data (for mailboxes, etc.)?

instead of pissing 6 g's away on old technology, why dont you piss 4 g's on new technology. Get yourself a S/W upgrade and and new Call Pilot.

your companys phone guy is not too far off
in his pricing, and trying to mess around
with hard drives the way you are can sure get you in a lot of trouble in the long run,
dont try to be a hero, leave the phone work to a certified phone tech, ask him about his price on a call pilot, you may be much happier in the long run, I have been there.
