Here is a RAW (NEF) file which is corrupt (Camera Nikon D700). I have been trying to restore and open this file (among others). Can anyone help me out? If you are able to recover this file, please let me know how you did it and which program you used as I have a couple hundred files like this. Unfortunately I cannot recover my card as I already formatted it and another wedding was photographed on it. Any help would be much appreciated.

Donwnload from here:

Well, as far as I can tell, that file contains pure 00's -- there is nothing in it apart from 9.270.852 zeros.

If that is how the files all look, I'm sorry to say, but there is absolutely nothing that can then be done to recover them without access to more data off the card.
