    Recovery for corrupt DNG files?

    jimtron Level 1

      I have many DNG files that are showing as corrupt--files copied from a failing hard drive. The file sizes seem right--around 26MB each, shot with a Canon 5DMIII and converted to DNG via Lightroom.


      The bad hard drive is dead now, I can't run recovery software on it, but I do have the files on a healthy drive.


      Anyone know of software that might be able to open corrupt DNG files? Some of the photo recovery software I've used in the past works by scanning media, but I have thousands of media files on the drive--I'm looking for recovery software that will let me open specific files and try to recover them. I'm on a Mac. I've tried Photoshop CC, and LR 5.6. When I try to open the .dng files, I get: "Could not complete your request because Photoshop does not recognize this type of file."
