'end of file' that are not related to backups, so getting this message
during normal database use is possible and probably related to a hardware
failure of some sort. Google says that this can happen when a sector
containing critical structures is damaged. My advice is to replace your
drive asap, or switch to a RAID volume. It could of course also be related
to a controller board failure, or corrupted drivers/OS. You were very lucky
to be able to recover the database without data loss.
