Hey guys


I made the mistake of using a public computer in an internet cafe in Central America to backup my files from an SD card onto a USB-flash drive. After initally copying the files I could still view them on my SD card but the ones on the USB drive looked like the screenshot that I have attached.


Unfortunately I lost the SD card later on so the only thing I have left is my USB stick with some weird file. The size of it is pretty mucht the size of my photos but it's all compressed into this one file.


I've spent heaps of time googling a solution (I didn't change the name of that file btw) but have failed to come up with a solution so this is my last resort. Any help would be much appreciated!
