    JPG picture file size is reading incorrectly....each picture is reading 5.31GB. I am not sure but I think that was the containing folder size. The containing folder reads 4.41 TB. My hard drive is only 255GB. I am running Windows 7 completely updated. The drive containing the folder is only 10GB. Of course, the file will not open. Error says...does not support the format. Checked extension and it is JPG.

    What is the source of the file? The extension doesn't always indicate the actual file type. You can take a DVD image (for example: Windows7.iso) and change the description (ie: Windows7.jpg). That does not make the file a "jpg", and most image programs will not be able to open the file and give you an error (ie: unsupported format).

    Most likely, the file was incorrectly named. Otherwise, the file is likely corrupted.

    The files were picture files. The folder had 5.31 GBs of pictures. Now properties on every picture reads 5.31 GB.
