You can load a batch of at least 400 files, possibly as many as 1000, into Adobe Camera Raw. If they load, they are OK.

That Camera Raw or any other software was able the load the file does not in any way mean that the data was not damaged. It only means that the metadata and the file structure are fine enough to be able to be loaded in that particular application.

Unless the RAW file itself contains some form of integrity check (CRC, MD5 etc.) it is going to be rather hard to detect corruption. A single flipped bit might be completely invisible or may ruin the whole image...
