Download JPEG Recovery LAB

<- Back to JPEG Recovery LAB

JPEG Recovery LAB does not process individual photos or videos! In other words, if ‘myimage.jpg’ is corrupt then there is no use in scanning this file only. Instead try recovering the file again from the original memory card. Before downloading and using JPEG Recovery LAB consider the following:

  • If you need to recover digital photos from a NTFS formatted hard drive, you may first want to try a generic file recovery software like ReclaiMe. File fragmentation is less of a issue when recovering files from NTFS unlike FAT32 or exFAT formatted memory cards. A generic file recovery tool like ReclaiMe is easier to use and faster. In 9 out of 10 cases it will do just fine.
  • Be prepared that it will take a long time. JPEG Recovery LAB will grab all available resources leaving very little for you. It’s best to leave the PC untouched for a few hours and let JPEG Recovery LAB do its thing. If you need the PC for work, limit the number of cores JPEG Recovery LAB can use (settings).
  • JPEG Recovery LAB requires and internet connection to communicate with our server. More information on this.
  • Also, by using the software you indicate to agree with the license agreement.
  • Requires 64 bit Windows 7 or better, 64 bit with .NET 4.5. NET 4.5 is normally installed on Windows 8 or better. For Windows 7 you can download it here.
  • When looking for deleted files only tick ‘Only search unallocated space’. By deleted, I mean files that you selected and then deleted using Windows or the camera itself.

This is the most common cause for not having success with JPEG Recovery LAB: Minimum amount of memory installed for JPEG Recovery LAB to work is 8 GB! When just meeting this requirement, limit the number of cores (number of parallel threads) to 2. In case you’re trying to recover JPEGs, consider trying JpegDigger instead, in 9 out of 10 cases it will do and it’s quicker and lighter.
