I love this site!
I had a photo on my digital camera's SD card that I deleted, but now I need to get it back. I've downloaded a bunch of free programs off the Net to try and recover it:
PC Inspector Smart Recovery
Easy Undelete 3.0
Each of these photos recovers the JPEG file and saves it to my hard disk. When I open the file in Explorer, the bottom half of the photo is missing - it's just cut off (gray space). The weird thing is that when I look at the thumbnail of the file in Explorer, the complete (uncut) image appears! Why can I see a complete image in the thumbnail - but not when I open the file? My layman's brain tells me that if I can see the complete image in the thumbnail, then the info for the cut-off portion of the image is stored somewhere and I could use it to fix the file so that the image is complete when I open the actual file. Is this totally off base? Any ideas? I tried attaching a WinZipped version of the JPEG at issue (800KB), but I got an error message that said I had exceeded my limit.
Thanks so much!
