    13000 Files corrupted due to brainlag: How to batch process to find the working ones?

    PM4931

      Hey guys,

       

      so apparently I killed our whole Backup folder (300GB) in last August. I managed to recover many many files with DiskDrill but all Metadata are lost.

      Opening them in InDesign each after another and saving them is just ridiculously time consuming because InDesign cannot open most of the files and crashes now and then.

       

      How can I determine the working files with at least correct Start and End of File?

      I did not find any pattern with TextEdit. I would create a small app to test for this, or maybe EasyFind would already be sufficient, to drill down to a few hundred files.

       

      Is there a simpler way?

       

      Thanks.
