I was asked by many of my Blog Visitors about the SLM file recovery methods. I am very much sorry that I took so much long time to respond with the solution, just because I was bit busy and out of station, to be able to see comments and work on this much demanding Post.
First off, SLM stands for Media File, SLT stands for Thumb nail. So, Thumb nail can be recovered easily with the File extension change technique, however the original Photo; SLM cannot be recovered with the simple File extension changes. So, follow this awesome method to recover all your SLM files to revert back to Original Photos.
[UPDATE – 17-09-2015] Better alternative to PIXRECOVERY Software. Use Stellar Phoenix JPEG Recovery Software to recover multiple SLM Images at once. Test it using below Torrent link. Ensure you buy software once happy with the test results.
