For those interested I changed it around a bit:
At some point JpegDigger RAW > JPEG was moved to JPEG-Repair and then there was no more JpegDigger. Few months forward: I needed a no thrills JPEG carver and since then I have added functionality. Thought it needed a name and I decided to recycle the name JpegDigger. Confusing eh? So from now on JpegDigger is a JPEG carver. Nothing really fancy and it's current shape and form are to fit my own needs.https://www.disktuna.com/jpegdigger-jpeg-photo-recovery/
The carver scans for JPEG magic numbers and TIFF based RAW photos.
If it detects JPEG:
- Rest of the file is parsed, following chain of JPEG markers so It can get some idea if we have a complete file + some level of error detection and correction (to at least a degree where it can be opened using a photo viewer/editor. I also have a few memory cards I tested against where it was able to defrag a few files following some simple rules of thumb.
- If TIFF based file:
It tries to grab the high res JPEG from that. Has been useful to me few times where the RAWs recovered (by ReclaiMe, R-Studio, PhotoRec etc. etc.) were corrupt and the high res JPEG was the next best thing. With many RAW types you should be able to get a full resolution JPEG.
If this is considered too 'spammy' let me know and I'll take it down.
