Rescue and restore damaged photo files from camera

I found this great tool for recovery of damaged files when my D300 turned some nice shots of my kids into an unreadable mess.

sudo aptitude install testdisk

It comes with its own tool for memory cards. Run it via the terminal:

sudo photorec

It is frightening to see what is recoverable!
