    useful article,but, for example,File Repair is terribly prog, i used it (and reviews on the web about it negative). And the rest of the progs … $ 39!? lol no thanks. You did not mention Hetman File Repair 1.1. This high-quality software and costs $ 20. MUCH better than the File Repair. Program performs a bit-level analysis of the JPEG/TIFF images. There is rumored to be a more thorough analysis of the file.

      Glad that it helps. Remember to backup all your files, especially Jpeg Photos to an external hard disk. Keep 1 copy on an external HD and another on your primary workstation.

    I used Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery Platinum edition. Not only it recovered the lost or deleted photos/videos or Audios from storage media even if it is corrupted or formatted, but also repaired/fixed the JPEG files and immediately rectified the file to make it as a new one.
