On the computer of mine that crashed, apparently the hard drive failed and it scraped a few things off with it. Is there a program that detects damaged files and will tell me what those files are? It's apparently only stuff in my account, and some pictures are half-missing their thumbnails, but with programs, videos, and music, it's hard to tell what is damaged. Can anyone help?

A good freeware program is PCInspector File Recovery ( http://www.pcinspector.de ) But it is a bit confusing to use.

A good program for checking your drive for what you can recover is provided at http://www.runtime.org (it's called GetDataBack) - it's easy to use and it's free to check and see what's recoverable. BUT, it's a bit expensive ($80 US) if you choose to use it to recover your stuff.

That's not exactly what I wanted, sorry. I'll explain in a little more detail, and maybe you can help. Most of the things in my documents, not all, have been half-damaged, don't ask me why, I wish they had been totally wiped. I want a program that finds damaged files, tells me what those damaged files are, and then deletes them. Any programs like that?
