Re: JPEG Photo Repair

Agreed, "tried everything" equals zero relevant info. And yes, of course some JPGs can't be repaired. It becomes less likely with each bit of info corrupt/lost that it can be repaired.

Re: JPEG Photo Repair

Yeah 3 or 4 bad sectors, that should be possible in 5 - 10 minutes. Do you see lot of these cases? Do customers actually ask for it? Like Luke says, ppl nowadays keep just taking pics.

Re: Hard Drive Data Recovery By Disk Drill

Disk Drill, a lot of effort has gone into the interface. Guess some would call it pretty. FWIW I tested it against a somewhat more complex logical corruption issue and it's file system reconstruction completely failed. It was able to recover files based on carving, signature based. Which in my book ...
