    Recently and suddenly, all my image files are, when viewed as thumbnails, being displayed grayed out. They open normally, it's just the previews that are messed up. What might be wrong?

    Right click on the thumbnail icon and refresh it.

    That worked, thanks! But what did it mean when they were like that? Does it mean they haven't been accessed or edited for a while?

    I'm not sure!!!

    Whenever I backup pictures in large volumes and restore I find that I have to refresh most of the icons.
