The files are not separated parts.They are individual and independent files.
The file formats are .avi, .mp3 and .ogg
Thanks a lot in advance

Are all recovered .avi, .mp3 and .ogg truncated ?
If you check several files sorted by filename, do you get the whole video/music ?

Almost all files are damaged.
I can't sort them by filename because they have F and a random number.
Thanks

The number are not random. Please try to play several consecutive files (In the file explorer, sort the file by filename).
Please tell me the kind of damage you have for each file extension (avi, mp3, ogg).
