inport jpeg sequence with some corrupted jpegs

I guess this is not strictly AE related but it happens to me in this context.
I have 2 independant webcams in a remote location that upload to ftp a jpeg every 60s.
then I download from ftp all the jpegs and import them as image sequence in AE so I can work on these time lapses and render them to video.
AE gives me error message when I scrub, or render (then stops rendering at first occurrence) that some jpegs have an expected eof.
I sorted the jpegs (thousands of them) in the finder by size and found in the smallest sizes that some have not been completely uploaded by the cameras so they have image towards the top and then grey to the bottom. I just deleted these as I don't care loosing some, but others are nearly full and I can't find them except looking one by one.
What I imagine I need is a tool that could find and delete the bad ones automatically. Then reimport in AE only the good ones.
Any help greatly appreciated.
