Can anyone tell me where to find the full file specification for the .FP7 format with header, footer information, magic numbers if appicable? I'd like to do data recovery on raw disk clusters based on this information. Thanks
Wes may be dealing in red magic numbers,
No, the File structure is FMI company proprietary information and is not available to the public. Reverse engineering without FMI consent is a violation of the EULA.
Recovery is built into the application for the purpose of retrieving data.
If you need help with a corrupted file one possibility is "Winfried Huslik":
Okay, that's pretty much what I needed to know. I wanted to see if there was a way to search the unallocated space of a corrupted drive to find the .fp7 files.
Wes may be looking at a hay stack,
I believe Hard Drive or File Recovery is a very different technology that does not require knowing the .fp7 file structure. There are applications to do that. Also, there are companies specializing in getting data from really corrupted/damaged drives.
A search on the internet for "file recovery osx" returned 3.15M results.
