Are these pictures still on the card?

If so you can try using PhotoRec (http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec), it is free and the best piece of software I have used to recover pictures.

I used Klix from Joesoft to recover a CF card, after trying several free ones. Klix worked brilliantly.

Good luck.

No this is on my harddrive. I'v had this file on my drive for a while. There where on a second drive. I had to do a reinstall, when i went back to look at the picture about 65% where like this.

Just re read the page from PhotoRec and you can still use it

I tried Klix when i lost a lot of pictures from traveling and it was good but PhotoRec sorted out so many more pictures + it is free, although not too user friendly.

The thumbnail data is at the begining of the file and it is common to be able to see the thumbnail on corrupted files. You could give other programs a try but sometimes you just have to accept that they are gone.

Maybe someone else knows some other tricks
