Damaged Photoshop Files

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Stuart Pedazzo, Jan 25, 2006.

  1. I just recovered from a HD crash. I can recover my Photoshop files
    from the damaged HD but most are unusable by Photoshop CS2. I have
    found a few demos of programs designed to recover these files. They
    work quite well but the licenses for them are expensive. (Around
    $150). The demo versions leave a watermark on the print.

    Does anyone know of a freeware or reasonably priced program that will
    recover damaged files?

    Thanks
    Sincerely,

  4. I guess I should have been a little clearer....I have a file recovery
    program that works. Some of the larger recovered PSD files are not
    readable by Photoshop. I am looking for a program to fix the
    recovered PSD files.

    Greetings,

    I suppose you using [email protected] Undelete or Uneraser (DOS) utilities to
    restore erased data. These are truly powerful data recovery utilties
    that never never failed me before. They were always able to restore
    lost data, even considered completely lost. That should really help
    you. Give it a try.

    I have written a GPL utility which extracts layers from PSDs
    (http://www.telegraphics.com.au/svn/psdparse/branches/psdparse_png/).
    This can sometimes work with corrupt files, can you send me a file to
    test with?
