Autocad File Integrity Checker

We need a way to batch check the integrity of a lot of AutoCAD files and need suggestions or recommendations.  These files have been recovered from a raw data image so many of them are corrupt and will not open.  The option to move any undamaged files would be extra beneficial.

The only program I have been able to find is one called SmartPurger but it does not work as AutoCAD will popup with error messages on corrupted files and stall the process.  There is an option in SmartPurger to auto accept the popups but it does not seem to actually work.

I know that there is a Batch Standards Checker bundled but we have 100000 files and I have to click ok on every corrupted file.

Is there any way that we may be able to filter which files have certain document statistics? It looks like any valid AutoCAD file will show the last modified date and person in the TUPDATE and LOGINNAME.  If there was a way to sort/select/display only files (without having to open each file) that met certain criteria it would go a long way.

Been Googling for a few hours and it looks like it somehow may be possible with LISP or Script programming but I've got zero experience with these things.
