Have you ever accidentally deleted JPEG files in Windows 10/8/7? Here is the easiest way to recover deleted photos. Download the free JPEG recovery software – EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard to recover lost photos.

Overview - What Is JPEG

JPEG is a commonly used method of compression for photographic images. The degree of compression can be adjusted, allowing a selectable tradeoff between storage size and image quality. JPEG typically achieves 10:1 compression with little perceptible loss in image quality. JPEG/Exif is the most common image format used by digital cameras and other photographic image capture devices. Along with JPEG/JFIF, it is the most common format for storing and transmitting photographic images on the World Wide Web. These format variations are often not distinguished and are simply called JPEG.

The file format known as "JPEG Interchange Format" (JIF) is specified in Annex B of the standard. But this "pure" file format is rarely used, because of the difficulty of programming encoders and decoders. It implements all aspects of the standard and because of certain shortcomings of the standard.

Image files that use JPEG compression are commonly called "JPEG photos". Most image capture devices and editing software programs that output "JPEG files" are actually creating a file in the JFIF and/or Exif format. The JFIF and Exif standards are incompatible because they each specify that their header appears first. In practice, most JPEG files in Exif format contain a small JFIF header that precedes the Exif header.

2. Why cannot I recover 2GB data for free?

It is recommended to check the version installed is Free or Trial because they are different versions.

Trial has data preview function but cannot save any files, while the Free version enables to recover 2 GB files. The default free space is 500 MB and you may share the product on social media to get another 1.5 GB.

3. Why cannot the recovered files be opened?

A file is saved as 2 parts on the storage device: directory info (which is comprised by file name, time stamp and size info, etc.) and data content.

If the files with original file names and folder structures cannot be opened, one possible reason is the corrupted directory info. There is still a chance to recover the data content with the RAW Recovery method in our software.

The storage structure of the lost files would be altered or damaged by any changes on the drive. If you save the recovered files back to the same drive, the original data structures and data content would be corrupted or overwritten, which causes permanent data loss. So you should prepare another disk to save the files.
