iTunes creating ghost / bloated files?

Electricity breakdown deleted all data on my iMac iTunes. Message said that the iTunes files have become damaged and renamed-which on search could not be found. While copying available music on iMac to iTunes, there are 20files generated, each for duration 1:41:27 ranging from 4GB to 95GB, but play only for 4-5minutes! I have deleted them and transferred to Trash. They are .aif files (which I think should be .aiff for Apple)-is that why I'm unable to use them? Why are they same 1hr+ size but play only for 4-5mts? Are they virus? Corrupted? Movies? What should I do with them? How come they show as if for same duration, but diff. size? Appreciate help+clarity. Thanks so much!

Software/Hardware used:
itunes, .aif file, bloated audio files

    Yes, probably they are corrupted. They have big size, possibly they partially have junk characters and very few parts are good/readable. You can try to recover them with a 3rd party tool like soundhack (free to use). Or buy any tool for the same purpose.
