recover corrupted WAV file
Posted on 2013-01-30
We had a big music poll/countdown over the weekend that I recorded from my amp using the Line in on my PC and Nero WAV editor.
All was working well until the HDD ran out of storage space. We were at a wedding at the time so I couldn't have known that the pre-save buffer would blow out to 65GB. I know that the 6hrs of audio would compress down to 2-3GB once I saved the file, but whilst Nero was recording, it stored the data in a file in the TEMP folder.
The program became unresponsive and the only option I had was to kill the process. Because the C: was now full (0KB remaining) I had to move the temporary WAV file to one of the other hard drives and reboot the computer.
Now I have this WAV file that is 65GB and I cannot open it. Not even with Nero WAV editor.
Is there any way I can perform a repair on the file or open it as a partial recording?
I don't care whether it contains the whole radio countdown or just a few hrs of it.
