Corrupted files

Postby sarahfay » Wed Apr 12, 2017 10:40 am

I had three different cameras, each using the IMG_0001 format, so I had multiple photos, taken on different dates but with the same name. I have over 20,000 photos and wanted to merge them into year and sort by date. So this sounded a perfect fix.

However, when I followed this youtube video:

I found about a third of the files were not re-named as they didn't have an original 'taken' date as they had been modified (ie to switch from landscape to portrait) The files are now corrupted an un-readable.

Luckily they are all backed up, but I thought you should be aware of the issue as about a third of my files are now corrupted.

Could you post a link to an original & its associated corrupt file?

Hello, BRU does not change the file contents, it just renames the files by changing their file names.
