    Some of my documents and video games will not open on my computer, it shows that I've opened them in "Recent Files" but they've never opened and did not show a error screen. I just got this computer and it hasn't had many problems before now. Most of the documents and pictures that won't open are more than a month old, but the more recent ones still open fine. Any clue why this can be happening? I didn't know which category this could go into so I hope it's not a problem in windows 10

    Maybe your hard drive has some bad / weak sectors . Hope you have backups of your data. Hard drives die at the worst moment - all the time. Or the weak sector belongs to the application which should be doing the opening of those data files.
