JPG files very little !

#1 Post by DidierMisson »

Just use PhotoRec to recovery an USB disk in bad condition (HD failed).
I have plenty of files...
.mov, .mp3, .mp4 and .jpg
Mov and other seem correct. :)

But all photos jpg files are very small ! :shock:

As these photos come from a digital camera (Lumix and Nikon)... it's impossible to have a correct photo so little ! :oops:

Last time I use PhotoRec (photos was coming for other photo cameras), it was perfect.
Why JGP are so little ? How can I try to recover them ? :roll:

Check the files named f*.jpg. Files named t*.jpg are thumbnails.

oh fine !
I just look on the last folders.. but yes, I find other JPG files more "normal"

Oui ok, impec ! J'ai bien retrouvé des fichiers JPG de tailles "normales" dans d'autres dossiers.

Merci / Thanks. :D
