    Can you open them in any other imaging program?

    Is this new and do you have any idea what may have caused it?

    Do not know but if you got a image viewer like IrfanView it should work.

    What in the world is "e file"

    When did this start happening?

    What if anything did you do that might have caused this?

    If you navigate to an image file in Windows Explorer ...right click on it and select open with then choose Explorer does that work?

    yes i can see that pic...but i cant seem to see my own graphic files...
    i recently deleted my hard disk partition accidently(did not format) but i recovered it using GETDATABACK for NTFS..After this incident i cant seem to open any of my jpg or any graphic files.i get a message "preview is unavailable".But i noticed that the file size of each of the graphic file is correct.How can i trouble shoot this problem.

    It sounds like the files themselves are corrupted. Try downloading some other jpg to your desktop and see if that opens.

    Just a wild question .. How'd the pictures get to your computer originally.
    By any chance ... was Easy Share .. Image Zone (or some other Browser/Organizer) involved ??

    If those files were recovered, the starting and ending positions of the files on the disk was incorrect. The files are corrupted and probably unrecoverable. IrfanView will usually open even corrupted files if image information that is interpretable is present. They are almost certainly lost. The file size was probably retrieved from the MFT by Getdataback, but the actual location of the files was incorrect.
