If only all corruption could be identified with code
How I identified some corrupted files based on a hopefully good backup
HDD = hard drive doomed

I do some cloud backups, but a lot of stuff like thousands of FLAC files ripped from a thousand old CDs doesn’t need to really need to sit on a remote server.
