Recently, whilst trying to free up some HD memory, I wrote some images onto a dvd and then deleted the images on my HD. To my horor when I subsequently tried to view the images on the dvd, they were not there.
Using Active File Recovery software, i managed to recover most if not all of the files, but whilst some are ok and open fine, most of them, cannot be opened or previewd or anything.
These images are very important to me and i could lose a very important contract if I cannot resolve this, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
IMPORTANT: I do not need recommendation for recovery software that will find the files and recover them, i have already done this and unfortunately cannot redo this with other software, as a problem with my OS required formating of my HD and reinstallation of WinXP, so it is unlikely that I would be able to recover anything now. What I really really need is some way of fixing the corrupt files that i have already recovered.
I found the following question on this site but it does not adequately resolve the issue.
