slightly corrupted JPEGs not recovered

I am running PhotoRec and it is doing a great job at recovering intact JPEGs. The problem is the ones that are partially corrupt. When I am looking in the folder that they are going in, they pop in at full resolution, with metadata from the camera and everything, but you can see a couple of lines on the bottom are missing/black/purple/pink/green whatever. and then they disappear, some times they are gone for ever, sometimes they end up as either a 160x120 px or 120x160 px thumbnail.

How can I have it keep the damaged files, so I can then just crop them in photoshop or paint or whatever and still get most of the picture.

Please help.

In Options, enable Keep Corrupted Files. You can also try the brute force mode (same menu), note that it's very time consuming.
