Back story: I have about 15 photos (JPEG) that are corrupted files on a computer after accidentally deleting them on a SD. I have recovered them using Recuva, and tried File Repair to open the corrupted files with no luck. The thumbnails display for all of them, but when opening with a variety of applications, the computer freezes.
Here is what I want:
- It has to work. This one is kinda obvious, but it is the most important feature. Chances is I will not use this application after the images are repaired.
- Free! (Bonus points for open source!) I've seen many paid products online, but I don't want to buy them if they don't work.
- Batches: I don't want to individually import all of the files and wait. Ideally, it won't change files that aren't corrupted so I can select the whole folder and take a nap.
A decent GUI: I don't need anything fancy, but I've seriously seen applications for this that look like the image below:
(This software is needed for a friend who uses Windows XP SP3 32bit: I personally use Windows 8.1)
I don't mind if I can only open them in that one program: I can take a screenshot and edit some EXIF data. To open I've used MS Picture Manager, GIMP, Paint, and the included Photo viewer.
