HDD Cut & Paste transfer failure vs Corrupted data
Posted on 2006-04-15
I was recently moving data from an external hard disk [1st] to another external hard disk [2nd]. As you may have already summed up, the "cut & paste" transfer did not complete successfully. What happened was that the data cut from the original [1st] external hard disk was for any reason whatsoever corruptly pasted on the 2nd external hard disk. 98% of this data relates to jpegs (my lifetime personal pics - damn it!!!), and what i mean by corrupt data, is that the thumbnails are fine but when the jpegs are opened, the colours are a total rainbow and the pics look like crippled... well I would send a sample attachment if i could. My dilemma is this : what can i do to recover my data (essentially jpegs) back please? Find some software to recover the data from the original [1st] external hard disk from where they've been cut?? or find some other software to try and fix the corrupted jpegs on the 2nd external hard diks where they've been pasted???
whatever the case, kindly advise software to use. i am ready to pay for this service since i can't afford to lose my lifetime's pics!!!
thank you for your help in advance.
