JPG (JPEG) is the most common file format for images. Many digital cameras will take photos in JPG format by default. And the majority of graphics you could download online are JPG files, as JPG has a quicker page load time due to its relatively smaller file size. There should be lots of JPG images saved on your computer or other storage devices in everyday use. However, they may get lost unexpectedly sometimes. If those lost JPG files mean a lot to you, guess you would desperately want to get them back. 


Is it JPEG File Recovery Possible? 

After a JPEG file is deleted, formatted or disappeared, it is not totally erased at once. Each JPEG file has a pointer which indicates the operating system where the image starts and ends. Deletion or formatting only removes the pointer and marks the sectors that contain the JPEG as reusable for new data. You can recover a JPEG file before the sectors are occupied by new files. So stop adding files to the drive where your JPEG files are lost to increase the recovery rate. Meanwhile, time is urgent, please find a way to restore data as quickly as possible.
