If you have only encountered a single corrupt file, or for some other reason suspect that the issue may be with the file rather than the storage device, then you should try one of our other products. SecureRecovery for Virtual Drives is meant to repair full drives rather than specific files.
Also, remember that the demo version will not restore corrupted virtual drives. Instead it replaces repairable folders, files, and their structures with demo restorations. You will need to purchase the full version in order to access restored files. Any files that do not show up in the demo recovery are unrepairable, even by the full version.
