I tried to download photos from microSD and the vast majority of the files appears to corrupted/damaged. Precisely speaking, Windows photo Viewer should me the mistake " Windows Photo Viewer can't open this picture because the file appears to be damaged, corrupt, or too large"

I tried to recover the files via Stellar Phoenix JPEG repair and it works but it makes an ugly inscription on each photo like "you use demo version buy normal one" . So I tried some article that advises some software that it also has some fee. Maybe you, dear experts can advise me some free software that helps me to recover my photo files. Thx in advance. I use Win10.

Try PhotoRec
http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec
It's free and well rated.

From the website:
PhotoRec is file data recovery software designed to recover lost files including video, documents and archives from hard disks, CD-ROMs, and lost pictures (thus the Photo Recovery name) from digital camera memory. PhotoRec ignores the file system and goes after the underlying data, so it will still work even if your media's file system has been severely damaged or reformatted.

Do  you get a thumbnail view, try this as a trick I know
Open the folder where the images you copied over
Now go left to the top of Explorer viewing panel.at the very top is Organize expand it and click on Layout
then preview Pane. Now you should see a small line separating them on the right, highlight one image or just hold mouse over it and a preview should appear on the right, drag that line to the left and it increases the size of the preview drag it further and it gets larger
If the quality is ok you can use the snip tool to grab it from there and save a capture using the region.
Preview pane
