Corrupted, huh? I'd use photorec. it's free, it's available for multiple operating systems, and it ignores the underlying file system entirely (making it able to recover images that may other products can't).

Here's a sticky post with information about it:

Recovering Images or Video from Memory Cards

Sorry. I removed that product name from your post because it's on a list of censored products here, and for the time being, I'm not going to allow members to promote it here, even if they're a satisfied customer. We do that to set an example and discourage repeat spam when companies try to use our forums for advertising.

When you see that (product or company name replaced with ****) that's because someone was trying to use our forums for commercial purposes.

We see that every day (posters joining in order to advertise products in our forums). Most of the time, we just ban the poster showing them "spam" as the reason and that's the end of it (they get the message and stop trying to promote a company, product or service in our forums).

But if they persist (rejoin using a different member name and continue to promote them after warnings and bans), I may take stronger action by including the names of products and services in our censored words list (and yes, I see that product name in it, and that's why it's being filtered by our forums software).

That's a shame, as they do have good products. i even use one of them. But, we do not allow advertising in our forums, and if a company persists in trying to use our forums for commercial purposes by promoting their products here, they'll find their company and/or product names being filtered, even if it's a satisfied customer making the post.

Now, sometimes it happens when a company hires someone to help out with their search engine rankings. Often, these marketing firms make use of spammers that pretend to be associated with the company they're promoting.

From time to time, I'll send a friendly note to the senior management of a company when I see that, pointing out spam being made from regions the company is not even located in. For example, I may see a spammer in India pretending to be located in the U.S. or U.K., joining lots of forums with spam in their signature pointing to the company they're promoting.

Sometimes, the companies are not aware of the tactics being used by these SEO (Search Engine Optimization) specialists to promote them (by joining lots of forums and posting spam). I've had companies thank me for letting them know about it, with them immediately terminating their relationship with the SEO firm they hired.

Sometimes, it really is an employee of the company making posts for them. You'd be surprised at how some of these guys will pretend to be satisfied customers, yet still dumb enough to use a company e-mail address when registering, and posting from an IP address related to the company being promoted (so that there is no doubt that the posts are being made from someone associated with the company when I take stronger action and filter them).

In any event, if you see a company or product name being replaced by asterisks, it is usually because of repeat spam (where they didn't "get the message" after the first ban or warning, and continued to advertise a product in our forums). in order to set an example and discourage more repeat spam (spammers rejoining under a new member name and posting the same spam again), I'll sometimes include the name or the company and/or products being promoted in our censored words list when that happens. That way, nobody (not even a satisfied customer) can make a post about them in our forums.

Bottom line, we do not allow advertising in our forums. If a company does it, or hires a marketing firm that does it (and pretending to be a customer and promoting a product in forums is a common tactic used by SEO firms), they can expect consequences (including having their company and/or product names filtered by our forums if the spam persists after a ban or warning; and having the posters' e-mail addresses, ip addresses, post content and more added to centralized databases used by other forums to detect and filter out posts made by spammers promoting their company and products).

We do not tolerate spam here.

Yea.. and if they promote their software in our forums, I'm going to ban them and filter all links to it if they persist and keep doing it.

Look... our censored words list is really not that long. Only a very small percentage of the products being promoted here ever makes *that* list. There is a reason for it being there.

Sorry. I don't care how popular their software is, or how well it works, we're not going to tolerate spam here, even if the software they're promoting is free (since they're still promoting it to make money via support licenses they sell).

IOW, company size and product popularity are not relevant. For example, i can remember sending a warning note to a Microsoft employee promoting cash back via Bing here in threads when members were looking for better deals on cameras. That member didn't promote Bing in the forums after that. But, if he would have ignored my note about it, you probably would have seen the word Bing being replaced with **** (and maybe even the word Microsoft replaced the same way) no matter the member posting it, even if they were a satisfied user.

It's a matter of principal. We do not allow our forums to be used for commercial purposes. So, someone associated with a company should not attempt to advertise their products here. Now, from time to time, I may make an exception if the product is free. But, you'd better check with me first, because free product or or not, I'm going to frown upon anyone using our forums for advertising in most cases, especially if the company or web site it's on is commercial in any way.

Lately, I've even taken extra steps to make that clearer (that advertising in our forums is not allowed). For example, this Anti-Spam section you'll see when registering is pretty hard to miss, since you can't complete your registration process and post here unless you type the word yes to it:

Quote:
Please enter Yes to indicate that you understand that you will be banned if attempting to promote businesses, products or services by posting links to them in your signature or posts. We do not allow advertising in our forums. Also note that we may filter all links to businesses being promoted by Marketing Companies in our Forums, when we see them posting links here. This helps to reduce repeat Spam promoting the same companies.
Yet, companies ignore it every day and promote products in our forums anyway.

If another member wants to mention them, no problem. We want members to share information about products and companies they like.

But, if someone associated with a company does it, or a marketing company they've hired is doing it, we're going to ban them for Spam.

If they persist after that and don't "get the message" the first time around, they just might find their company and/or product names being filtered by our forums software, so that nobody can post about them, even if they are a satisfied customer. We do that to set examples so that companies realize that spam is not going to be tolerated here.

We delete lot of spam and ban a lot of spammers every day. It's a huge problem, and I'm usually not going to give a company special treatment if they happen to have a product that's popular and/or well liked. Sorry, it doesn't work that way here. If a company tries to use our forums for advertising their products, there will be consequences.
