First, it would be good to know which version you are embedding. Anyway, 
in this case, it won't help a lot...

We don't have any way to repair the partition atm, we have to add such a 
feature. However, if your application is just using ADS to read entries, 
one solution would be to save the partition files, or to make them read 

If you are modifying the partition, then extracting the entries as a 
LDIF file on a regular basis could help (you will then just have to 
remove the partition's files and inject the saved LDIF).

FYI, we are working on a disaster recovery system for the next version, 
and we already have a journal which stores all the modification done on 
the server, as a LDIF file. The idea is to restart from a stable 
checkpoint, applying the journal will restore the base.

Hope it helps...
