    Probably you have lost some picture files/.jpg files. But where were they. That is on any hand held devices like mobile/tab etc. Or a laptop/PC or any other kind of device. Please come back with more details.

    .JPG is one of the many image file extensions or "tags". Are you sure that is / was the format? It could have been any of a number of them such as: TIFF. GIF. BMP. PNG. PPM, PGM, PBM, and PNM. A lot depends on the source/device they are coming from. Things like 3D modeling software, digital cameras and other all give you the option to save your image in a specific format that you choose. To recover a lost file you can use the search in Windows either by part of the file name or using the file extension.

    *.JPG generally is referred to as an "extension". It has no meaning in itself. It simply acts as a 'hint' to some OSs (and to most people) about the structure of data contained within it.

    Usually (but not always), a file name that ends with ".JPG" is a 'JPEG' file, a kind of file that can be processed as an image for display.

    In almost all cases, that extension has nothing to do with any recovery procedure. (Except that some recovery procedures might display various .JPG files to show examples.)
