I’ve had to replace two hard drives in our primary file server in the last six weeks and now we’re noticing that many of the files on us are damaged. We primarily use it for video storage (MP4s) but there are some audio files on there as well that aren’t wanting to play back. The videos will play in VLC however there is a significant amount of artifacts and stutters. The videos won’t play in Windows Movies & Videos at all with an error along the lines of the file type is invalid.
I’ve tried WonderShare’s RepairIt but it has been unable to improve the playback quality. Any suggestions?
