Cannot open recovered files after crash RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recovered my .iso and .avi files from my system drive after a WHS crash. I had to use Testdisk to recover them because the drive could not be recognized by Windows after the crash.  Now I cannot open the files.  I know they are full-size etc. but they appear to be corrupt for some reason.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Files in your shares (D:\Shares\etc.) aren't your "files", they're just pointers to the actual files, which are elsewhere on your system disk or on secondary disks in server storage. Please see this FAQ. for more details.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
