All my pictures are corrupted

Hey there i just salvaged my pictures from an accidently formatted hard drive, unfortunately most of them are corrupted. Here are some samples of how they look, and how they don't look. Can someone please help me solve this? Thanks in advance :)

  1. Sorry to say this, but it looks like your pictured were not completely recoverable. This is a problem that is unrecoverable.
  2. So there's absolutely no program or method that can work? :(
  3. Best answer
    Try downloading GIMP and see if it opens the images. Its an advanced, free image editor, but it will let you see if its Windows Photo Viewer or your pics. If it doesn't like the images, then you are most likely out of luck. :(
  4. Thanks for the suggestion. I downloaded it and i still got errors and glitches :|
    I also tried photoshop, irfanview, paint shop pro and even some jpeg repair software (11 in total) so i think it's safe to say that my files are gone forever :( Thanks for your help guys :)
  5. Anytime :)
