Can you explain how you recovered the files? Were they recovered from a failing hard drive?

with offtrack easy recovery .  the hd was listed as healthy, and was seen by the os, it just couldn't be assigned a letter so it  couldn't be read, i tried a couple of possible solutions but none worked.

 

the advice i got on this forum was to try recovery software but annoyingly when i said politely that i'd rather try to assign a letter to the drive first i was told by the moderator that i had refused to take advice...anyway thats water under the bridge now

 

the docs and PDF's were ok but all the j pegs and canon raw file were not readable

Take a look at these utilities for repairing jpeg files. One is paid but may work better than the free tools. The paid version has a demo.

 

Is the drive you recovered the files from still available? If it did not have a letter was it listed as RAW in Device Manager?

 

Edit: here is the link

Edit Edit: I would try the utility on a copy of the jpeg file, not the original

Sorry, I am not sure what else you can try for repairing jpegs. Did you try the demo version of the paid utility? I did find this tool for Canon Raw files. It's at the bottom of the page.

 

http://www.wizards.de/rawdrop/

 

Edit: I just came across this utility for jpegs. If you can see your jpeg export to a tiff and then use paint to open.

John

 

yes i tried the paid  program

 

jpg snoop returned error did not start with jpg marker

 

and raw drop created a very small tmp file which disappeared after 3 seconds...i had hope for this one too :(

 

could it be something stupidly simple like they all name renaming with correct file type?

 

thanks for digging the software out for me anyway

I was hoping the hard drive had not been reformatted. There is other software that may have given a better chance at recovery. Sorry, other than possibly renaming the files to a different type I am out of ideas.

right click the file and rename the extention to some other graphic file. i.e. tiff.

 

But if the original files were jpeg I doubt renaming them would help. I think the files are corrupted to a point where they are not recoverable.

I concur.

 

My experiences with recovery software are that there will always be some files that are not recoverable by said software...whether the "cause" is being overwritten in part or otherwise suffering damage either before or during the recovery effort.
