Recovered raw photos not opening

Post by ericha » Fri Nov 15, 2019 11:56 pm

I have used R-photo and R-Undelete to deep scan a damaged SD Card. They both identify the same number of pictures, half jpg and half fuji raw images. I am able to see the thumbnails on both Rphoto and Rundelete. I also can double click and see the uncorrupted images full size. However, when I recover the images I cannot open them. I have tried Photoshop and Lightroom and they indicate that the files may be corrupt. Please help!

You may use R-Photo only, it has the same data recovery engine as R-Undelete has, and it's free. Are you saying that you saw an image full size, then recover it and that very image appeared corrupted? If yes, can you send me an example of such image? raptorbck (at) gmail (dot) com.

Were you able to get a full sector-by-sector backup image of the card without any read errors?

I only did a deep scan using R-photo. I have not tried a sector-by-sector backup. What software do you recommend for that?

Most R-TT products have the ability built in. They also have a program called R Drive Image. Alternatively, you could use ddrescue in Linux.

R-Photo can. See R-Photo's help: Disk Images. The same is for R-Undelete.
