I was reviewing some archived digital pictures and was shocked to see that many were "gone". The image name remained, however, the image size listed as 1k and all viewers indicated "unknown file format". This happened to several dozen images in different folders. Some folders' contents were complete "gone" while others were only partially affected. The "date modified" date and time on all of the affected files is the same.
I try to keep my "Norton" suite updated and scan semi-regularly for viruses. I updated virus definitions and ran a full scan after noticing this… no viruses were detected.
Any ideas? Many images were not backed up.... would really like to figure this out...
Any help is greatly appreciated!
