If you still have the file available: How many objects are there in
the slot? How many objects does a traversal of the file return? Try


If the numbers differ then the file is corrupt.

You can try closing the file, and then force a repair:

  dets:open_file(T, [{min_no_slots,N},{repair,force}]).

where N is some suitable integer.
