    Default How to recover corrupted log files?

    I'm not really sure what the problem is, but I just did a quick black box log of my truck. When I got back, I parked the truck and shut it off. When I reached down to save the log, it said it was already saving. I expected to have a problem, and sure enough, the log file is not displaying data properly. It has a bunch of vertical dashed white lines across the graph section of the dashboard tab, and the data tab is a bunch of garbage also. I'm assuming something happened during saving to corrupt my file since I wasn't actually the one initiate the saving process. Is there any way to recover a file like this? I really don't want to take the truck out and beat on it again if I don't have to, and I would like to look at the data I got if it is possible.

    Send the log file to me paul@efilive.com and I'll see if I can recover the data. (Sorry if this is a bit late but I only just saw your message).

    It isn't worth taking up your time over, and I already went out and made another log. It seems the problem is my SD card slot is losing connection with the card for some reason. I just had that repaired last year and haven't even used it since then, but I noticed the display switching from SD to Mem the other day after this post.
