I accidentally forgot to backup my Pictures folder ... then I formatted and installed Windows and installed some software. I installed EASEUS professional recovery software ... and it found all of the 700 files...all of the same file size....but they're all corrupt or just won't open. I don't know what to do! It could be ownership issues or something ... cuz when i click properties on the folder it's read only but i tries removing it via command prompt and it did but it came back again...and i tried changing ownership permissions and such but that didn't work.
what do i do? obviously the file data is there it just won't open...same for my video files that were in the folder.
