Nikon D800 D810 NEF files

#1 Post by Chris0004 »


I've just finished recovering photos from my external drive.
I've recovered all but 99% of my new files are corrupted.

My NEF files load a normal looking preview and than change to random colored lines.

Please help

I have seen such results from disk heavily fragmented. Unfortunately it's too late to defragment the disk.
AFAIK the only workaround is to extract the smaller resolution picture instead of using the corrupted high resolution picture.
