Why File Corruption Recovery Is Actionable And How To Do

When the file corruption prompt appears, what’re you gonna do? Just follow the suggestions, which can be easily found on the internet, to try to fix certain files? For instance, some people suggest you to run chkdsk for fixing files. Is this the right thing to do? If it’s not, how could users complete file corruption recovery when stuck in such situation?

Now, we’d like to analyze the possibility of file corruption recovery. In general, we would say file corruption happens when the following things occur: the drive used to store files is damaged; the file is missing after being closed accidentally; the content of file has been damaged.

So, in which cases users are able to recover a corrupted file and in which they can not? Here’s the principle – as long as the real content of file is not damaged, or we can just say as long as the file is not overwritten by new data, it can be recovered; otherwise, file corruption recovery would be a task which can never been done.
