Forum on data recovery, file unerase, disk unformat, and RAID reconstruction.
Discussion on the R-Studio, R-Studio for Mac, R-Studio for Linux, R-Linux, and R-Undelete software
Downloaded R-Undelete for FAT to recover some recordings on an SD card I formatted. For some reason R-Undelete recovers sound files with an echo so everthying repeats as though in an echo champber. It's mostly comprehensible but as a recovery tool I think R-Undelete fails. Maybe it's only aimed at image files and can't recover .wav files but I don't think I'd trust it with anything. Glad it was a free trial.
It's strange. R-Undelete recovers files as they are. It doesn't add or delete, something to/from files. Either it fails and sound files become garbage. Or files are recovered correctly.

The only way I could see this happening would be if two wav files were somehow fragmented and then interleaved together and recovered RAW by their starting and ending signature. But, that'd be a rare occurrence indeed. I'd say it's more likely that you've got some sort of codec issue or effect running through your sound card. Are you trying to open the files on the same computer with the same software as before?
