Lightbulb Re: Corrupted Files

im afraid that once the image file is corrupt --- its corrupt, had it been deleted and you wanted to recover it, there would have been a solution. I spent some time searching on the Internet for something that might help you, but i got nowhere. However, have a look at this page, it might be useful to you if not for now, but later in future.

always backup that stuff onto discs and stuff. I keep a handy folder on my desktop labeled "Stuff to Burn" and I compress my pictures and music and documents and once i get around 650-700MB worth of data I burn it!

Ive been through the same situation countless of times, my worst time was during my technical college days, I ended up losing a 120 page project and I had to start it all from scratch again otherwise I would have the failed the whole degree.

Ive learnt to keep backups ... The best way to gain wisdom is through our own mistakes, well at least I speak for myself

Dont upset yourself about it... you will build yourself up again.

how are they corrupted? you may be able to use disk utilitis like scan disk or defrag to see if the files can be rescued. (it's only ging to work wit very light corruption).
