A client sent me a 45 minute interview that was opening up as 0:00 in Windows Media Player, Audacity and VLC, I popped it into Audition and it said "Metadata was found in the file but is corrupted and could not be read" so I grabbed wavfix dragged my wav onto the exe, it said:

> Processing '****'
| [w] Wrong RIFF size: 0000000000 B + 8 [file size: 0355004130 B;]
| Current file structure :
| ======================
|     <fmt > chunk [offset: 0000000012; size: 0000000018 + 4 + 4;]
|     <data> chunk [offset: 0000000038; size: 0000000018 + 4 + 4;]
|     [NULL] chunk [offset: 0000000064; size: 0355004066 + 0 + 0;]
|
| [i] Checking <data> chunk..
|  |  A block of 355004066 unknown bytes comes after <data> chunk.
|  |  Assume those are audio data. Merging them with <data> chunk..
|  |  done.
|
| Recovered file structure :
| ========================
|     <fmt > chunk [offset: 0000000012; size: 0000000018 + 4 + 4;]
|     <data> chunk [offset: 0000000038; size: 0355004084 + 4 + 4;]
|
| [i] Saving repaired file to '****'
 

and just like that I had a perfect 46:13 wav file! 😌
