When you deleted the account with the pictures...

1. Did you choose to "delete files" when you deleted the account?

2. Were the pictures saved onto a shared folder?
Don't mind me, I'm just lurking.

What may work is trying to use various windows programs, paint, scanner and camera wizard, try inserting into a document or an email, fax viewer works sometimes. I have received pics in emails that were a real pain to get into a format that could be viewed. Also do you have photo shop it may work? There are also some picture converting tools online that you can Google that may work, it will take some detective work!! Make copies of a few to experiment with!

I did a Google search after my post, there are a few that say they can do the job. IMO I would email them and send one of your pics as a sample before I dropped any coin!!!

Hello aanthonyz,

I don't know about 100% sure, but I found a few programs in our Freeware Applications thread found here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic3616.html I'm quoting the three that seem most relevant to your situation. They were listed in post #3 of the thread.

[*]FastStone Image Viewer - An image browser, converter and editor that supports all major graphic formats including BMP, JPEG, JPEG 2000, GIF, PNG, PCX, TIFF, WMF, ICO and TGA. - nosnhoj#3

[*]FastStone Photo Resizer - An image converter / resizer intended to enable users especially digital camera owners to convert, rename, resize, crop, rotate, change color depth, add text and watermark to images in a quick and easy BATCH mode. - quietman7

[*]IrfanView - "IrfanView is a very fast, small, compact and innovative FREEWARE (for non-commercial use) graphic viewer for Windows 9x/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003." - ColdinCbus

I hope one of these will solve your problem.

Hmm. That message "no preview available". Do you see that when you open the folder or when you try to open the image? If the former, do you have the folder set to thumbnails? If not, switch to thumbnail view to see if that resolves the issue.

Also, have you tried viewing the images on a different computer?

I have run it on another computer and still nothing this happens when I open the folder or view the files but its only happening to the files I recovered all my other pictures are working..I think that when they got recovered they were corrupt I need a program to fix corrupt JPG files I have looked everywhere

I don't know how you recovered the pics...but a standard blurb on every recovery program that I've seen is...a statement to the effect that seemingly recovered files may, in fact, be unreadable/unuseable.

When that happens to me, I just delete the files and move on...there's nothing that can overcome that, AFAIK.

Of course, you can try to recover them again, using a different recovery program. Some are better than others.

I used NTFS Undelete but now will I still be able to recover it even after I formated the entire hard drive?

As I've implied or stated before...there is nothing guaranteed about any recovery effort, using any program. If you read the description of any program, you will see that...nothing is guaranteed.

Even backups are not guaranteed to work when pulled out, if users have had the foresight to prepare such before problems. That is why users are urged to test them after they have seemingly been completed and before they are archived somewhere.

Some programs will state they will recover data after formatting...as long as the file data is not overwritten by file data. You need to examine the stated parameters/limitations of the software you choose to use to attempt your recovery efforts.
