I have several nef images damaged because of corrupted cards.

After taking the images I copied the files from the card to my computer.

Apparently, all the files are ok (no errors given during transfer) but some of them are unreadable by all the apps I use to work with them.

Can you please help me? 

Please note that I have plenty of files with this issue, because I copied them to my computer, then format the card and used other times!

With Nikon View-NX-i I'm able to see part of the images (as you can see from attachment) but anyway I'm not able to open them (even the part that seems not ruined).


The files are too large to be put in attachment so this is a dropbox link where I put two of these (made with D800)
