Improper Shutdown Issues

Hi there Alfresco Community,

I have a question regarding an improper shutdown of Alfresco. I'm experiencing an issue after an improper shutdown that prevents me from accessing the Alfresco Web Client (I get an error 404 message when trying to connect).

The only solution I've found is to go to "C:\Alfresco\extras\databases\mysql" and then run the db_remove and db_setup bat files there. Obviously this isn't much of a solution because removing the database can cause lots of precious data to be lost. Luckily I've only run into this problem in a test environment, but our company has clients running Alfresco and I worry about the consequences that could arise if they were ever to shut down Alfresco improperly through accident or ignorance.

Any suggestions of a better method for handling this situation would be awesome!
