Corrupt files.

I used my 4gee action cam at the weekend and after getting home realised roughly a third of the videos and photos taken were showing as corrupt files.  It seems to be totaly random as i have other pics and videos taken at different times of the day that are fine but some are corrupt. I really would like to recover these files if possible and to stop it happening again. Thanks for any help in advance.

Good Morning @Tony2215

I'm not really sure if you'll be able to recover the corrupt files. 

 

I had a good look on Google and found some recovery apps, but not sure how successful these would be.

 

Are you using an SD card in the Action Cam?

Hi Karen,

 

Yes its a 64gb sd card. Ive been using the card in the camera for about a year now with no problem untill now. I have moved all the files to my pc now and reformated the card in the camera in hope it stops it happening again. 

I still cant seem to find anything that will open the corrupt files.

Hi @Tony2215

 

Thanks for the reply to @Karen_C Smiley Happy

 

She has gone home for the night so I'm eager to try and see what recovery apps she may have came across for you.

 

I will get back to you as soon as possible, unless another user can help us in the mean time.

 

Thank you

 

Richard
