yes it has recvered all the photos as FRD files
and i can not open them and have no idea how to ?????
any ideas

I have never come across this format before, but you could try making a copy of the file then, using the copy, change the extention (.FRD) to jpg and try to open it then.

It probably will not work but worth a try.

the recovered file is called deleted jpg picture2.jpg
but under file type it has FRD file
and im unsure how i can change tghe file type????
any ideas are welcome

Don't think you can change this file type, you will need a stand alone viewer or the prog that creates them...
best thing to do is use another recovery tool that recovers you pics to some thing more user friendly...

I clicked on the link suggested .But it does not open for me.I have a doc in frd format.Can you suggest how do I convert it into doc format?

from what you say;

"the recovered file is called deleted jpg picture2.jpg
but under file type it has FRD file"

That the file has recoverd ok... it's just that the association has changed...

Try RIGHT clicking on one of the files, choose "Open with" then "Choose Programme"...navigate to whatever you want to use to view them, tick the "always use this progamme" box, and see if that works.

As ever, apologies if I'm barking up the wrong tree!!

.jpg files on MY computer are listed as "Paint Shop Pro" files, becasue that is the default prog to open them....

There are however .jpg files and any prog that will open a .jpg file will open them; it doesn't have to be paint shop pro.

Does that help at all?
