Binary file, transferred by mistake in ascci mode thru ftp
Posted on 2004-04-14
I have quite important information inside a .RAR archive inside a ftp, but the file by mistake was uploaded in ascii mode and deleted from local disk. The only copy left is on the ftp in ascii (corrupted), Do I have any possibility or procedure to try to get my data back?
I guess, if I understand how exactly the data becomes corrupted when it is transferred in ascii mode instead of binary, maybe I can figured out how to develop a tool or script to undo the data file. Even doing multiple attempts or probes like a bruteforce utility trying to get a password.
I apologize if there is any syntax error, since english is not my native languaje.
Thanks in advance!
