    JFileRecovery

    A friend pointed this one out to me and I figured I'd pass it on if you haven't seen it before: http://www.jfilerecovery.com/

    It is java based but that should open it up to be used across platforms. Opinions, views and rants welcomed. I haven't tried it fully yet -- have no media that needs something recovered -- but it does sound interesting.

    awesome find! This would work better on higher bitrate media, right?

    I honestly can't say because I haven't tested it.

    Well, theoretically it should though, at least the way I'm thinking about it. Because if 1KB is corrupted, and the bitrate is 16 Kbps, then you have a larger span of time corrupted than if the bitrate is 320 Kbps. All i was wondering is whether this is correct, or am I thinking incorrectly?

    Hi metguru,

    I would suggest that it is simpler to think in terms of percentages?

    Like if I have a 2% corruption then that will affect that amount of the playtime?

    I agree that the concept of a higher playback speed might make it more effective, but only because the absolute size of the damage (%) will probably be lower?
