    Hello,

    I took VERY IMPORTANT pictures with my new Canon PowerShot SX160 IS using an old, generic 32gb memory card (that I've never had any problems with). While taking pictures last Saturday, suddenly the playback wouldn't work. Got home, popped the memory card in and all the pictures I took were gone.

    I ran a recovery program and 1/2 the files came back no problem (THANK GOD). The other 1/2 are corrupted ( [​IMG] ).

    I have found several programs out there that run, show me the preview (YEAH, HOPE!!) and then want BIG MONEY to actually recover the files. [​IMG]

    My question comes down to this - are there any free programs, what is the best out there to fix/recover these corrupted files?

    I have looked at that site, not sure if I'm reading it wrong - but it seems that the person running the site does the fixing and isn't accepting any. I see where it says they can be fixed, examples, an area to submit but then a message saying not accepting entries. Why they get damaged, how to prevent in the future.... Am I missing something?
    Also the page hasn't been updated since 2008.
