First, I would get on the vendor of this product very hard. Have your
manager or even higher escalate it to somebody at the vendor with enough
authority to ensure the resources to solve the problem. They may be able to
help. If not, at least you've illuminated where the problem lies, namely
with the vendor. This is not a time to suffer in silence. One question for
them is whether your users should still be using this application while
experiencing these problems.

Here is a pretty good article (at least at first glance) that discusses data

One thing you might consider is writing a program that will move the data
from this table to another table. Give it the capability to continue when it
encounters an error (when it hits a bad block), and log the errors. This way
you can save what you can. Maybe the vendor will provide a way to recover
more data.

Good luck,
Dennis Williams
