does anyone know of any method to recover this file?

i ran bzip2recover on 1 .bz2 file - that created me ~400 .bz2 files, in the block size...when i ran bzip2 -dc asdf < filename it returns an error.  so then i manaually bzipped the recovered files in blocks of about 40 - i ran into 2 bz2 files from the original bunzip that were corrupt - the second block and the very last block

i've tried bzip2recover on a linux box, and a windows box, no luck.  i have also tried using 7zip - no luck either

bzip2recover extracts all blocks from given files - whether there corrupted or not. You just cannot recover those corrupted ones(with crc error).
