Re: Opening image fails

Just had a look with a hex editor. 

The unreadable files are simply filled with zeros.

There is no data or header to recover.

Looks like the backup had "saved space for the  file in the FAT but not copied / preserved the data inside.

I'd try Irfanview. which unlike many seems to open files others won't handle.
If I had a link to one of the files, I'd try it.

As you think it's a jpeg, next is a hex editor to see if the header is intact.
