"Photo Gallery Can't Display This Picture Because It Is An Empty File"

 

I get this message on some of my photos.

 

After doing a little "research," it seems that maybe the file is corrupted. Is there any way to fix them? I found a few programs that claim to do so, but the reviews are not very good on them.

 

My software and PC info:

 

Windows 7 Home Premium Copyright 2009

Service Pack 1

Lenovo Windows 7 PC

 

Thank you,

 

Leah

Hi leah :)

Sadly, once a file is corrupted, it's really rare to be able to "repair" it. When you face a such situation, the best thing to do is to either recover the file from a back-up, restore it to a previous version (if your Shadow Volume Copy service is enabled) or simply redownload it (if it was a file you downloaded). I don't know any programs that actually work, that can actually "repair" a corrupted file and I doubt there's real legitimate ones too.

I will try your suggestions.

No problem leah, and yes sadly there's things that cannot be fixed, no matter the domain it is in :( Good luck!
