I had an employee recording points for a project with a Trimble Geo XT 7 series receiver attached to a Zephyr 2 external antenna. The receiver went to sleep between collecting episodes. Upon attempting to re-open, the file came back as corrupted and TerraSync was unable to fix and open the file. I have never had an unrecoverable corruption and didn't expect this to be a permanent problem. We stared a new file and finished collecting data.
However, now Pathfinder cannot fix and refuses to open the corrupted file. I copied the corrupted file parts to a separate folder manually (Pathfinder won't transfer file). I can open the individual files that show up in Windows Explorer (*.dd, *.gic, *.gip, *.gis, *giw, *.gix, *.obs, *.obx) in various programs (Notepad, Word, Excel), but only user-entered data (comments, notes, text fields from data dictionary form) show up as readable text. The rest is various combinations of numbers, letters, and symbols. I need to extract the coordinate data from this file, even if I can't postprocess and correct it.
Is there any way to translate the data displayed as symbols into text and numbers so that I can see the coordinates?
