Related to WA001 .
Acoustic sensors regularly generate empty files - that is, files that are 0 bytes in size.
This problem is distinct from small files, short files, or corrupt files.
Empty files can be hard to associate with a manufacturer, because they have no internal metadata, hence why we have a catch all problem identifier.
Effects of the problem on common tools #
EMU can detect and rename these files enmasse. See https://github.com/QutEcoacoustics/emu/blob/master/docs/fixes.md#rename-empty-files-fix-oe004 for an example.
