I want to recover only my JPG files using Stellar Photo Recovery. How can I scan for only those?

If you want to shorten the scanning time and get improved scanning results then you may instruct the software to look for only one particular file type so that the software searches only for that particular file (for example : jpg) and provides you better results.

Kindly follow the instructions below to perform selective scanning:

Step 1: Run Stellar Photo Recovery software

Stellar Photo Recovery- Select

Step 2: Select the drive/location from where to recover. Now, go to Advance Settings and select the Photo Format as JPG.

Step 3: Next, close the settings and Click Scan. The software will only scan for the selected JPG files now.

I had scanned in some old family photos. I have moved them around in various media and in the present tried to print them. Some were printable and some would not print but all can be viewed as thumbnails. I understand that the thumbnail may have a larger file associated with it and could still be on the media but may be corrupt. And a section of your program will find and correct these problems so they can be printed. Is this correct?
