A heart-warming happy ending from the JpegSnoop site comments:

Hi Calvin: While at Disney I accidently deleted my sd card. I used several recovery programs and got most pictures back but one very important picture was corrupted only 1/3rd of picture showing and rest was grey. I had all but given up hope of recovering it until by chance (thanks Google) I happened upon your site and your utility JPEGsnoop. The abilities and information provided are way beyond my understanding however when I opened the image and clicked Image search fwd the entire image appeared…I thank you from the bottom of my heart because I broke a 12 year old girls heart when I deleted it. I will be sending you a token of my gratitude and sincere thanks.
