"recoverjpeg tries to recover JFIF (JPEG) pictures and MOV movies (using recovermov) from a peripheral. This may be useful if you mistakenly overwrite a partition or if a device such as a digital camera memory card is bogus. You can also read the recoverjpeg story.
For more information, please read the manual page for recoverjpeg. If this program saved your day, you may send a few restored pictures (in 800x600 format) with an authorization to publish, information you want added (photographers name, picture subject, electronic coordinates about the photographer) as well as a few sentences describing in which context your pictures have been lost and restored by this program. You can look at some pictures salvaged by this software.
