I am running windows XP Pro. Service pk3. I recently moved a large group of file from my windows media computer to my file server, 30gig worth of data. The image for the icon does not match what is in the file but the file name is correct and all the data is present. Is there a way to repair the image used for the icons, this affected about 50% of the files that I transferd.

You can do so by going to Folder Options then File Types tab and look for the extension of the filename like jpg or png and change it to what you use to view images.

all files that were .mov and .jpg stayed that way, it is just the preview immage that is messed up. It looks as if when the file was tranferd from one computer to the other it mixed the file up that is used to preview the file.

I fixed it, I did a select all right click and then selected refresh thumbnail. I guess it really wans't the icon it was the thumbnail I was talking about.
