Hi,
I have a question about missing samples, or non-uniform samples. I found out that audio samples can be reconstructed if they are oversampled. My question is can a 20 second oversampled audio file be reconstructed from the first or last 10s of the same recording, or recover a missing audio from what ever that you have. I know that this has something to do with Fourier transform, so, please, can someone explain me how it`s done, or can it be done? I suspect it is possible with simple uniform frequencies, but not with real life audio recordings.
Thanks

Thank you all, those are great answers. So, when you missing bulk samples, i.e. last tenth or last half, doesn`t matter, it is impossible to recover it, but, as @lvqcl pointed out, if you have every second, or forth, or eight sample (the power of two rule applies here, I assume), the recovery of all samples is possible without loss. It seams that, basicaly, it all comes down to sample resolution. I didn`t see the undersampled option, thanks for pointing it out, @pdq. And, of course, corrupted samples are another matter all together.

No, it is only because Ivqcl arbitrarily used an oversampling factor that was a power of two.

If you oversampled by something that isn't so conveniently neat and tidy like 96/44.1 then you can't eliminate all but every x*n sample where n is some power of two (or some other integer that is not a power of two!) and retain the information.
