    Corrupt JPG's?

    Hi,

    Wondering if anyone can help me.

    I have some recovered JPG files, recovered via Active Undelete, however when I try to view them in a normal graphics software there are classed at not property jpegs. I have tried to program called PixRecovery but no luck.

    Anyone have any ideas as to what I can do next?

    Thanks in advance.

    Luke
    Best Regards,

    Luke

    Where did you recover them from ?? A failed drive or external media, the Recycle Bin on your system ??? If they have been even slightly overwritten before recovery or part of the image has been lost or corrupted then you may not be able to get them back.

    Are you able to view them in this Active Undelete software ?? If you can see them there and are unable to view thm in other software, then they have been recovered in a "proprietary" format for that software and must be converted or saved as .jpg files to be viewed in other software. If the software will not allow you to convert them or save tham as "normal" .jpg files you might try the PrintScreen key and then paste the result into your other graphics software.

    PS - the more information you provide, the easier it is for us to assist you. Which "normal" graphics software are you referring to and what is the file extension on the recovered images ???

    This is just a complete shot in the dark, but it is worth a try <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16>

    1) Open up IE or whatever browser you use and drag the file into the active browser window, can it open?

    2) Instead of using a specific application, open up a blank word document and again drag the file into the document window, do you seen anything?
