    Hi All
    Somehow I managed to delete about 200Gb+ of movies!
    I'm in process of restoring them as I type, but I did wonder if there is a way to test the files integrity once they are back?

    Only way I can think of would be to crc or md5 checksum files for the original files. In theory if what you are restoring is a direct copy, then they should match. In theory.

    Nice theory - but the originals were deleted - I am having to restore them :(
    It took 2 days but now most of them are back - looks like my Bond collection got a kicking (missing about 12 of them now)

    Just being curious...what application do you use for restoring? I used R-Studio in the past and was quite satisfied with the results
