Was told you guys might be able to help out. Lost a lot of photos from when my 2nd son was born before we were able to back up, fingers crossed

 

Had an odd turn of events that someone might know how to fix.

Had a computer running Win XP and suddenly stopped working, was on a serge protector and just stopped working, thinking it might have been the power supply. 

Bought a new computer with pre loaded Windows 10, I took the old hard drive from the XP computer and put it in a powered external drive case and plugged it in, most of the files are exactly as they were on the old PC. However some of the pictures, from the past 6 months or so are all showing fine in thumbnails but when opened have colored bars with all vertiacal or horizontal chopping up the image. 

I have tried the drive on a different machine to make sure it wasn't a new computer hardware issue and have tried opening the pictures in different programs and all turn the same.

When I switch the thumbnail to large view I see the distortion in the thumbnail as well.

When a picture opens it shows very briefly ( all be it a bit blurry) the original image without the bars. 

I have tried using Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery, but did not have any results.

 

Anything else I can try? Seems everything is still there just a small segment has been messed up, any help is greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance

If there is some formula that can get these back that would be awesome, I have quite a few.

The thumbnails show normal in smaller sizes but they get wonky when opened

This is a long reach, I'm wondering if your present Windows cannot completely work with XP-created thumbnails and pictures; I'm thinking maybe the video card of today cannot handle the material created by the video card in the XP-loaded computer?

I wondered that as well, have tried on a couple win 10 machines, but same issue. Would the copied pictures retain the problem or would I be able to use some pictures on a stick to test on an xp computer. Or would I need the entire hard drive.

Worth a shot, a stretch for sure, but open to all options at this point

Putting a few small and large pictures on a flash drive -- good idea -- and test on an XP computer.
