Rescued ORF files cannot be opened / are corrupted

Hello,

During a clean up session I accidentally formatted a hard drive with my ORF + JPG files.

I used photorec to recover the files. I got nearly all of them. Whereas the JPG files are fine, the ORF file can be viewed with image viewers (uses probably the embedded jpg), exiftool displays the corret exif information, but I cannot open them in darktable or Rawtherapee. They say the files are corrupted.

I googled for "repair corrupted orf files", but got a lot of results, which look like automated generated sites (seems to be phishing sites) without real information and link "download our executable".

Well, does anybody have experience with such issue? I fear I lost all the ORF files.

Kind Regards, peleme
