Howdy,
After doing the most stupid thing in existence and accidently deleting the partition to my External 300gb HD (Through it was a quick delete), that contained my FLAC collection....

I downloaded Steller Phoneix Demo, It found everything on my HD. I brought the program and has allowed me to restore all my FLAC files to another drive.

I would like to find a program/way that can check the integrity of my FLAC files, so I know everything is OK/not OK.

Anyone know of a way/Program?

FLACTester v1.3 : http://www.vuplayer.com/files/flactester.zip

During encoding, then flac.exe by default calculates and stores a MD5 signature of the raw audio data, which later on can be used for verification and integrity checking. The above application can test a whole tree of FLAC files and generate a report afterwards. It does the same thing as flac.exe's -t switch ie. Decoding the FLAC files and recalculating their MD5 signatures of the raw audio data, and then comparing them to the FLAC files internally stored MD5 signatures.

Yes, an excellent FLAC file checker GUI for Windows will do a check on each FLAC file for you for errors. See the URL:

http://www.vuplayer.com/other.php - Get the FLACTester app. I use it regularly to check my FLAC files for any errors or corruptions that have somehow been introduced. Hope this is what you've been looking for.

Edit: I guess Martin H and I both posted about the same time. Anyhow he recommended FLACTester also. Enjoy!

You probably could've used testdisk to recover the partition, as long as it wasn't a full format. http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk

It sounds like FLACTester is the way to go, but just in case: I have a batch file that works similarly.

Hey Everyone!
Thanks HEAPS for the program and expecially to Firon for letting me know about TestDisk...I ended up taking a risk and stopping Steller and running TestDisk..It rebuilt my drive and there was not a single error after ScanDisk and not a single error (accoriding to FLACTester) in my 200gb of FLAC music!
I am so happy...Going to buy another external drive to backit up now.
Cheers everyone!
