    Corrupted files after Perfect Tunes scan

    I have recently acquired perfect tune and have been going through my old ripped flac files. On a recent directory scan Perfect Tunes seemed to hang on a scan of over 300 albums. It is now showing these file as corrupt even though I know nearly all of them were good rips. What has happened to my flac files?

    Try playing a flac file, if you have dBpoweramp try converting one of them to 'Test Conversion' to see if any errors are reported.

    Re: Corrupted files after Perfect Tunes scan

    I have exactly the same issue, I have 2965 files corrupted apparently ( I cancelled it after it was running for 6 days as it was not even 1/4 of the way through it ) my library is 65k tracks., I have selected 20 at random and ran the "test conversion" which worked without errors.

    All the 20 files I selected also play without issue and no blips or anything.

    Am I going wrong, I am a little concerned that a fair chunk of my music library has issues.

    Your files are on a network share?

    It is likely a network error which makes them appear as corrupted, try bringing the files to the local computer if possible.

    Spoon,

    1) Isn't bringing files to the local computer impractical? I have over 12,000 files that fill a terabyte of a network attached storage. Is there any other alternative to determine whether files reported as corrupted by Perfect Tunes are in fact corrupted?

    2) When you convert a file using "test conversion", if it doesn't report an error, does that mean the file is not corrupt?

    3) How do you clear the cache in Perfect Tunes in order to eliminate the reported corrupt file errors caused by changes to album art on a subsequent re-run of Perfect Tunes?

    4) Is there any way to filter the results of Perfect Tunes to not display Mp3, M4a and hi def (e.g. 24 bit) files as albums that cannot be checked?

    1) Bring just those files reported as corrupted
    2) Depends on the file type
    3) Run the main PerfectTunes application and there is a clear cache button
    4) No

    Also update to the latest perfecttunes version released today 1.7

    Re: Corrupted files after Perfect Tunes scan

    Good day,

    I don't know why but two days ago I have done a scan with only 7 corrupted files in my library.

    Today, there is 38 of these corrupted files !

    All flac files are stored on a HDD.

    1) why a flac file which was OK by the past became suddendly corrupted ?
    2) How to repair a corrupted file ?

    Thanks for your usual help

    HDDs can corrupt files, once corrupted it is not possible to repair the file, the information has been lost.

    Thanks Spoon
    If I re-rip again tracks corrupted files, did have I a chance that all flac files could be OK after or not ?

    check your hdd first for errors

    Then re-rip. To replace the ones with errors.

    Re: Corrupted files after Perfect Tunes scan

    I have recently acquired perfect tune and after the first scan of my music file I ended up with 77 corrupt files. I cleared the cache and after another scan I end up with 77 corrupt files. However, I can find the files and they play fine...so are not corrupt. I don't want to delete. How to I address this issue please? Thanks.

    even if the files play fine, they can be corrupt. Some errors can't be heard (minor defects in forma), some can hardly be heard and some can clearly be heard. That perfect tunes finds 77 corrupt files in your case repeatedly, is no issue of perfect tunes, but a clear sign, that 77 files are corrupt.

    You don't have to delete them. In case of minor defects in format, you can try to convert them and fix the defects. In case of defects in the audio data you have to re-rip those CDs.
