Strategies for recovering JPEG files from a damaged filesystem
I've recently found myself with what appears to be a damaged ext3 filesystem residing on a logical volume with RAID5 underpinnings.
I have recently uploaded about 500 JPEG files to it from my camera (before the filesystem fell apart). When I examine the bytes residing on the volume, it appears the data is still there.
My question is: What strategies do I use to get these 2-3 megabyte files off of the volume?
I have tried 'foremost', 'photorec', 'magicrescue' and 'RecoverDataLinux' to try to get the files. I get the small files, thumbnails, etc, but cannot get any of the larger files.
What does one do to get any of the larger files?
Thanks for your insight!
