    I've been having problems on a particular machine for about a week and a half. It started with .jpgs all from source that would not open in photoshop or anything else, at first I assumed it was a file corruption/compatibility problem but discovered this was not so when a file that was previously fine would no longer open. This so far has been limited to image files (.jpg .bmp etc...) and photoshop files.

    This morning we discovered that the containing folder shows 0kb and wont show thumbnails of the content. I copied the content to a new folder named something different and the content now opens.

    Does anyone have any idea what we might try to figure out where the problem originates and start on the road to a solution.

    I've run a virus scan and I am in the middle of a scan disk.

    Sorry to bump, I just wondered if anyone had any ideas, even just the likelihood of deteriation or seriousness.
