Strange case of file corruption

Thu May 19, 2016 6:59 am

Hi

Got a Seagate ST3500620AS few days back which had a translator problem, nothing big. Some bad sectors too, but nothing very bad.
I imaged the drive and after getting the files that the client wanted (mostly photos), they were almost all corrupted. I found it very strange, because only minor issues were found. If there were only some few ones, all OK, but on about 30GB of photos, almost all bad.....
Tried again, with DE, to go to the Explorer option and getting those folders. They were also corrupted. :shock: :shock:

So, I did another thing: I plug it to MRT and without doing nothing, only plugging it in, all files were OK, no corruption...

Just wanted to share this. It's always good to have several tools :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

What was the filesystem? HFS+ ?

Wow, interesting! I wonder what DFL DDP file recovery would yield.

NTFS. Nothing extreme. That's what made me suspicious....
