How did they get corrupted? Is it a transfer error or broken DMS program or..?

All versions of DMS v1.11+ are affected by a bug in the compression algorithm in Heavy1/2 mode.The compressed data is not corrupted and besides, the test function of DMS does not find any problem in this case.
The generated DMS files cannot be decompressed by DMS itself and no better result with XAD, undms, etc...
I specify that DMS has other bugs with more random and non-reproducible results that I cannot correct on DMS files...

Thanks, that's fascinating. At least you can fix it.

I wonder what Terry did then, having a bunch of disks that could not be decompressed.
