A shot in the dark, because I am not sure what you mean by "a dead zope
Create an external method that you can access from the 'non-dead zope
instance', which directly accesses the Data.fs file from the "dead zope
instance" (using the usual db.open/root=connection.root...) and then loops
thru all of the objects from the root down and copies them into the 'live'
