How I Repaired Incomplete/Corrupt M4A Video File

Towards the end of 2016 when all of us were busy planning the new year I met with an unexpected digital problem with a recorded media file. Here goes the insight of the issue: -

I recorded an M4A video file using my iPad Mini 2015 edition. The M4A video contained the mouse-flow of a program and my voice with a total size calculating to 75 MB. But towards the end of the video, the program collapsed but managed to save the video file. Once all got fixed, I saw my video not running properly. There existed sound distortion and black screen after it ran about 7 minutes. I fast forwarded the video and after 30 minutes mark the sound came back with visuals. So, overall 23 minutes of the audio-video went berserk.

Resource put to action

Hex Editor

A friend of mine who is a software developer used the hex editor software to look into its hexadecimal values. He told me that this could help diagnose the header file and might possible fix the issue. However, he warned me that it might not work as expected, so we created another copy of the video and used it as a sample for changing the hexadecimal values.

After trying to change (edit) the codes we saved the video but unfortunately, we couldn’t repair the header corruption. I appreciated my friend’s time and effort but 
quickly looked for repairing my corrupt M4A video online.

M4A Repair Online

Got to know about MP4Repair.Org and felt no harm in uploading my video for a repair. So, I used the button ‘Pick a damaged file’ and uploaded the m4a video. Straight away, it came up with 25 minutes of the sound file corresponding to repair 90% of the video data (& audio). Sadly, the MP4 Repair website wanted me to shed $90 to save the fixed m4a video to my desktop.

Like, I know this M4A video for important to me though it was a small video. The text I used in the video, i.e., my voice had come after a good amount of practice sessions, and I had no energy to re-do the video again. But also, I was not prepared to spend USD 90. Though, I appreciated the work done by

Software Help to Fix M4A

Like I came across the online M4A repair platform this time I looked for an M4A video repair software which I can download on my Windows desktop. After spending some time on the web, I downloaded Stellar Phoenix Video Repair application. Its source download page said it supported the video file repairing of MOV, MP4, M4A and M4V. The website clearly stated that the evaluation of the application is free but saving corrected video will cost $69. Like, mp4repair online tool the video repair desktop software was too not free of cost though cheaper than asking price of the online tool ($69 < $90).

Downloaded the application and uploaded my file to the software tray. It began to repair the M4A video file and took around 10-15 minutes after the repair stopped. Here, I couldn’t preview my repaired file since the software can only allow a preview of a file having a size >= 10 MB in the demo. Again visited their website and looked for a refund policy in case the product doesn’t perform. Luckily, I found the page and registered the application which allows previewing the video before saving. In the preview itself, I came to know that my file audio-video problem has resolved. The video played after the mark of 7 minutes until the closure correctly. My video presentation just worked fine, and I saw no distortion whatsoever.

Repairing a corrupt video file, an M4A or MOV doesn't come up for free. There are many desktop and online applications available that possesses the capability to fix the video, but they won't do for a free. So, if you plan to fix a critical video choose your software wisely since you will be paying for it.

Windows 10 migration for enterprise: what to consider

When Windows 10 was released in 2015, the enterprise world reacted calmly – during the poll at Microsoft’s own Ignite conference around half of the respondents claimed their company would wait for more than a year before upgrading. The same answer was given by a whopping 80% of businesses with more than 100 000 end users.

However, 2017 is the high time to start a migration process. Here are the top 3 reasons:

  1. Windows 7 end-of-life is scheduled for 2020. Seems like a distant future? Not for the enterprise world – business had the same amount of time to move from Windows XP to Windows 7, and still, lots of them ran out of time. Migrations pilots, testing, and fixing compatibility issues (more on that later) may take over a year.

  2. Windows 7 is still the dominant OS in the enterprise market; however, Windows 10 adoption is gradually accelerating. According to Spiceworks’ survey, Windows 10 penetration is already at 11%. Ultimately, more enterprise software vendors will be shifting their focus to Windows 10 quite soon.

  3. Universal Windows Platform – a Windows 10 novelty – is a major focus for Microsoft, and software providers are following suit. For example, Sage’s popular CRM and accounting apps are already in Windows Store. Our own PACE Suite will support repackaging any installer into Universal Windows Platform format later this year.

Assuming the majority of businesses are planning to upgrade this year, we would like to highlight a few challenges that must be considered.

Cost of migration

The most recent similarly large OS migration was moving from Windows XP to Windows 7. According to Forrester, businesses have spent $1000 per average upgrade back then. While the cost of moving to Windows 10 will probably be smaller, it could still be a significant amount for any large company. What is more important, the application migration process was the most expensive part of that upgrade, and it will be a large investment this time as well.


Any migration project involves deploying business software to a large number of end users. To smooth this process, we would advise repackaging apps to MSI format for the following reasons:

  • Minimize end user involvement. With MSI silent installations, important configurations (licensing information, components to be installed, etc.) are pre-defined, and users can’t change that and disrupt the deployment.
  • Create and deploy pure packages. Exclusion lists automatically filter all captured resources and omit unnecessary system changes, which ensures the creation of pure packages (for example, PACE Suite has an editable exclusion list tailored to Windows 10).

Compatibility issues

Migrating critical applications from Windows XP to Windows 7 was a major challenge for enterprise IT and service providers. Though lots of Windows 7 applications are compatible with Windows 10, the best practice is to verify if mission critical software survives the upgrade. Moreover, testing is especially important for infrastructure apps.

Windows 10 adoption for the enterprise world is imminent, and we believe 2017 will be the year the majority of businesses will start or even complete the upgrade. If your migration project includes application repackaging, we invite you to try PACE Suite. PACE Suite doesn’t require any post-install configurations, has an easy user interface with helpful wizards, and allows installations of any number of virtual and physical machines.

K1000 Service Desk: Advanced searching dates

Hi guys,

I just wanted to share a little issue I worked through with Kace support in the hope that it can save someone else the same frustrations.

I was trying to use a 'matches REGEX' when search for dates on tickets and not having any success with my query.

Your experience might vary to mine depending on your language/date settings but for our install of Kace the dates are being displayed as 'dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss'

However if I try and search for dates using this format, I wasn't getting any results. 

With the help of Kace support we fired up a copy of MYSQL Workbench and connected to the K1000 database and we were able to see the dates are in fact being stored in the following format. 'yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss'

So in conclusion, if you want to use regex or search dates make sure you format your dates as 'yyyy-mm-dd'

I hope someone else finds this useful. =]
