  • Hi kiwimtnbkr,

    Thanks a lot for having a look at that for me. I was afraid that was going to be the case, I had noticed that the file was 2kb in size which definitely seemed a little small.

    I did save it as normal and the device was definitely happy recording the whole way round. There shouldn't be a lack of storage on the device as the watch has been completely reset, factory reset and reformatted within the last month trying to resolve an ongoing issue with it corrupting the times of activity files.

    Maybe just a glitch and fingers crossed it doesn't happen again. Thanks again.

    • Hi

      I made a separate thread yesterday and only noticed now that there is this collective thread.

      Can someone help me with this file, please?

        FFRT reports that your file is a 100% corrupt - there is nothing further I can do to assist.

          • Disappointed to find my last activity file is corrupted. Attempted the suggestions here (and online), but I can't get any further. When using the repair tools, I'm getting "fit file being used by another process." Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

                      • Hi All

                        Just came back from Ironman Switzerland and realised that my 15 hours session did not sync because it was flag as corrupt. Hope the kind guru here could help. Thanks in advance.

                          Give this file a try - note that I had to estimate your calorie burn for the run.

                          cheers

                            THANK YOU MIKE, you are awesome!

                            replaced the broken FIT file in the watch, sync and voila!
