You say these jpegs were in a temporary file/folder. Does that mean the originals are still ok?
My friend prepared to burn a file of jpeg photos but the cd was faulty so she could not complete the operation. I ran CCleaner on the pc and it damaged those jpegs that had been "sent" to Cd-rom and were still in a temporary file. The pictures show a red X against them and cannot be viewed. The size of the jpegs is still viewable, but the information concerning the dimensions has disappeared.
Does anyone know a good software recovery program that might be able to get back the info CCleaner deleted. I know it was CCleaner because I reran the scenario many times and was able to destroy many more jpegs that way! Once a temporary file has been created ready to burn even deleting that file will not prevent the damage if CCleaner is run.
The pc in question is a Packard Bell desk top running XP home edition SP2.
