Windows 7: Corrupted jpg? Best program to view?

Corrupted jpg? Best program to view?

So I'm having a clean up of my laptop files and have a folder of photos from when I did a recovery last year after a failed hard drive. I have never been able to view these images since I recovered them and now am attempting to save them.

I have images set to open with Windows Photo Viewer which tells me it can't open as it doesn't support the file format.

Having looked into the properties of the photos, there is no exif data from the image so I'm not too hopeful about saving them.

Wondered if there's any tried and tested programs out there that are able to do anything with these or are they bound for the recycle bin?

Thanks in advance.

Have you given the free google Picasa a try?

If not, that may help you.

Hi, thanks, but in Picasa it doesn't find the jpg's, have tried adding from the folder they are in but nothing happened.

Try this - open one of the pictures with Paint and 'save as' in .jpg or .png.

"Paint cannot read this file.
This is not a valid bitmap file, or its format is not currently supported."

Hmm, sorry. I guess it was worth a try. Looks like those files are really shot.

This file is extremely small. 11.6KB is too few bytes for a picture. There must be a lot of bits missing.

I wondered that too.

I think when I recovered all the stuff from my broken hard drive that it compressed stuff or something, can't quite recall, think I used a Ubuntu boot disk and transferred out most of it onto a small drive. I may still have them on there 'undisturbed', so to speak.

There's a small possibility the extension, .jpg, is incorrectly attached. I use XnView which has a high range of format-viewing abilities. Viewing Properties through XnView might reveal the actual format. I lucked out one time when a common extension, .jpg, of a picture file I had viewed and downloaded wouldn't show. When Properties indicated a different format, I changed the extension to that and the picture showed up. You can, of course, change the extension without the need to install XnView.
