A backup image verified ok when it was created. I need to restore files but the "explore image" option indicates that the file is corrupt. "Verify image" also indicates a corrupt file. Backups are duplicated to an off site location. That backup file is also corrupt. Is there a method of recovering corrupt files and salvaging data? The backup is password protected, which will probably complicate matters.
Thanks for the suggestion, but it didn't work. Using Reflect PE Edition Version 2.1, Build 3141; Disk Restore doesn't recognize the image file and there is no option to ignore corruption. Perhaps that option is available later, if the file partially loads.
Are there any other options for recovering the data?
No, I do not receive a corrupt file error when using Disk restore. Disk Restore simply doesn't recognize the image file; it ignores the file. It is the "explore image" option that states that the file is corrupt.
quote:i got one of those as well. Windows Explorer tells me the file is corrupt and the Macrium Reflect Restore Image tools wont recognize file.
This is because the back of the file is missing and therefore the file cannot be opened. The most likely cause is av software preventing the index being written. Please make sure you add 'Reflect.exe' to your av software 'white-list' or 'trusted zone'.
