I mean docs, images, files with gibberish characters in them, etc. Not system files.
I had an SSD which had some documents on. Without going into too much confusing detail, I ended up merging some partitions on the drive. When I rebooted my documetns were gon. So I ran an undeleter and recovered what I could onto a different drive. Many of the files I recovered "cannot be read" by the various apps that should be able to open them; psd, doc, docx, all the usual ones.
I'm left with over 300k files (a mixture of office docs, images and software files). Some of these can be opened and some cannot. I'm not loving the idea of going through each one individually to see if it will open, so is there a software choice?
I used a program called Bad Peggy, which identified a lot of image files that were corrupted, but is there a similar app for other types of files?
