OK... I recently had a failure of the OS on my NAS and one of my other backups. I was able to strip the data off my NAS's hardrive to recover all my archived RAWs. I got a new NAS and put them all back on the network drive. So, I thought all was good. I was wrong.
My problem is that 90 percent of them seem to be corrupt now. Lightroom can't read the CR2s (cannot work with this file). I tried copying some of them locally, but I get the same messages in Lightroom. I will be distraught if I lost all these RAW files.
Does anyone know what is going on with these files? Is there anything I can do to recover the data now?
Also, it seems like CR2 files are pretty brittle. Should I be converting everything to DNG or doing something in my workflow to make these files a bit more rock solid?
