    Repair corrupt raw files?

    jimtron Level 1

      I found threads here about corrupt raw files, but haven't found any solutions to repairing corrupt files on a healthy hard drive. Are there none? Any software that can repair corrupt .dng files?

       

      I know about practices like formatting sd card in camera before shooting, backing up, running utilities on hard drives to make sure they're healthy, updating to latest versions of Adobe Raw and LR, etc. I always convert to dng when importing into LR.

       

      The corrupt files in question were shot by 5DMIII, and are the correct file size (24mb or so), and previews in LR work normally.

       

      Not looking for recs for media recovery (cards/drives); wondering if there are raw file repair solutions.
