    Recently had to re-install Windows XP and since then I cannot view / copy / move / print about 90% of my jpegs.

    When viewing folders in details mode, the jpegs I cannot access show "filename", "filesize" & "date modified" but do not display "date created" or "dimensions". When using "right click", "properties", these files show no advanced summary data.

    Is there any way that I can restore these jpegs??

    Thanks

    I have heard that PC Inspector works wonders to get data back.

    No, the jpegs that are not accessable are in the same folder(s) and subfolder(s) with the jpegs that do. As yet I've not tried any file recovery software as I do not know which to use. Hence the cry for help
