JPG Files Damaged Upon Hard Drive Recovery

  Freshmeat 14:05 20 Jan 2015


I recently did data recovery from an old hard drive. I had a lot of pictures saved in a folder in C: disk, I searched them by file name and found the folder in SWSetup. I copy pasted the folder and not the files to the desktop, which was a mistake because I couldn't open the folder after removing hard drive. Now I've added the hard drive and done data recovery again, however, the SWSetup folder containing the pictures seems to be corrupt. All of the JPG pics have turned to .ini files and I have not been able to convert them. Is there anything I can do to get the files back to normal? Help plix plox.

What size are the .ini files? The size that your jpg's should be? If 'yes' there's a fair chnace that you can simply change the file extension from ini to jpg and then open them.
