Fixing a broken GDB file

Question:My *.gdb file is damaged. When I run gfix, I get this error message:
database file appears corrupt ()
-wrong page type
-page 469 is of wrong type (expected 3, found 0)
I tried -mend, -full etc. all the combinations, but no luck with the *.gdb file. Can I ignore broken pages with gfix from my GDB file, so that I can rescue as much data as I can? I really need that data.
Alternatively, you can contact the folks at www.ib-aid.com and see if they can fix the database manually.
