Subject corrupt raster files (corrupt header file - hdr.adf) 
Author Kathy Russell 
Date Mar 09, 2010 
Message I have some corrupt raster files. The w001001.adf file seems to be fine - I can view them in MapInfo, with correct spatial information. However they will not display in ArcMap. Instead thay open as a raster of a single 1m x 1m cell with NoData value.

The files were copied from file to blu-ray disc, and in the process the header files seem to have become corrupt.

I can't manipulate the file in MapInfo either, because it doesn't recognise it as a grid.

Does anyone know a way to restore the raster?
