The image is likely lost...when a file is deleted, and then undeleted, it is possiblepart of the file was overwritten by another program before undelete, or the undelete was only partially recovered.

If it was just the jpeg header that was you might be able to rewrite the jpeg header, but that is a bit beyond me.

Perhaps davory,


a program designed to recover image files will help...the free trial will recover up to 200kb files
