JpegDigger is designed for recovering deleted photos from memory cards but it works on hard drives too. There are some features that set this tool apart from similar software: Error detection/correction, bitfragment carving, JPEG from corrupted RAW photos and entropy calculation.
Companion program to JPEG-Repair Toolkit. JPEG Repair license works with JpegDigger too.
