of course, I know that some of the files must be overwritten, I mean, properly overwritten
but my point is, some of the files can't just be overwritten (in terms of how saving on hd works). besides, inside the same music folders where the flacs appear corrupted, there's bunch of other files, like art work for example which are not corrupted and were recoverd completeley.
SO, my question to you guys is: are FLACS,APE's etc prone to getting corrupted when deleted and recovered? (maybe because of how they're built - MD5, CRC - these are just my guesses) and therefore the damage is permanent?
anyone had similiar experience? or is there a way to repair lossless files?
I hope you recovered your files to another hard drive so you didn't overwrite portions of the old files with the recovered files.
Also, if the FLACs were on your system drive, there's always the possibility that programs in memory were writing temp files to the disk, or the Windows swap file was writing to disk as you were doing your recovery.
