File recovery
« on: July 09, 2017, 02:07:07 PM »
Hi. Yesterday I was recording my band's show from the soundboard feed. However, at the end of the show, the engineer simply unplugged the device and the files now show 0 kb. However, under Windows properties, it shows an appropriate amount of data. IS there any way to restore that in Windows? The only thread I could find talked about it on a Mac and Audacity. I do have Wavelab 8.5; when I try to import the wav file though from the SD card it won't let me.

I've had this happen periodically, the latest just last week.  This YouTube video walks you through the necessary steps; so far it's always worked for me, however, your results may vary.

I've have had mixed results but the earliest and best success was Stellar Phoenix FAT & NTFS.  I am unsure if it even exists anymore.  It showed me files (That had not been written over) that I had deleted 6 months prior that I did not know I had deleted.  More recently I used Recuva which was pretty simple to use and it recovered an entire directory that I accidentally deleted.

Google is your friend.  Good luck!

Check out the WAV header file repair utility on that page.  The symptoms described sound like this could be a corrupt file header issue, which makes sense given what caused the problem.
