Force SOS on GoPro Hero 3

I had the SOS screen last night and I did not know to simply press any of the two buttons to fix it, so powered down - I'm now left with a corrupted file.

The camera is obviously capable of fixing the file so does anyone know how to force the camera to repair the file again?

My only other option is 100 commercial app

Re: Force SOS on GoPro Hero 3

Hi Donald - Yes I tried that and it does work for 50% of the footage but at around 100 it's a bit steep. It's strange that the camera can recognize a corrupted file and fix it (if you press the right button) but there seems to be no way to force it to do it again.
