I couldn't open it either normally, but this is what I was able to recover of that image below using a demo program that I found doing a Google search with recover corrupted JPG program. You might try a few to see which one gives you the best restored image if you wanted to buy one that worked for you to recover them. I couldn't find a demo or trial that really gave great results or didn't add a watermark like the one below.

I've had a quick search for an image recovery program and come across this, which I think will suit your needs. It isn't free (currently $45), but it does make a good job of recovering images as you can see. The demo version, which I have used, will recover the images but won't allow you to save them unless you purchase the program.

The following image shows the images that have been able to be recovered from the file that you attached previously.

I recommend that you save a copy of the corrupted files on your HDD and then copy them in batches of 25 or so to an SD card and then allow the program to work on that. This way, the originals won't be damaged further. Copy the recovered images back to your HDD. I suggest using 2 folders, one named Source to hold your originals and one named Recovered where you can save any images that the program has managed to recover. Always format the card before you start and in between recovered batches, making sure that it is a full format and not the quick version.

I'm impressed by this program, so I've purchased it as it may come in useful in the future.

I ran the program again, and here are the results: Attachment 126210

There are 2 folders, one called General Recovery Results, which is the first scan and the other called Omitted (recovered by Thorough Scan). Both of these folders contain a folder named jpeg, inside which you will find the recovered image. Depending on the severity of the corruption, both of these folders will contain the recovered image(s). In cases of severe corruption (as in your case), the first of these folders may only contain partially recovered image(s). Regardless of the amount of corruption, the second of the folders will contain the image(s) that have been recovered to the best of the program's capability, and it is this folder that I recommend that you take your recovered image(s) from. Sometimes an image is so corrupt that even this folder might contain incomplete image(s).

Having tried this program, it would appear that recovered images can only be viewed in their entirity on the computer, and only at certain view sizes. This limitation may well be down to the severity of corruption of the original images. This is a bit of an inconvenience, but at least it gives you the opportunity to see the full images again. However, to get images that you can print out you will probably need to look to professional software costing 10x as much as this (or even more).
