Hi guys,


I have a .3gp file that I want to open but it's either corrupt, or the folder/hard drive space where it's on is corrupt. The entire folder loads slowly, and it will not open. If I try to open it, it will slow down and possibly crash my computer.


I would like to fix it if possible. I tried to fix it on an online site but it didn't seem to work.


The interesting thing is the file was exhibiting this behavior on one computer, and I transferred it to this one, to two places, and they each have issues. Opening it in safe mode crashed as well. This file is very important to me, please help! Thank you.

What files are in the directory?


Run this command via Admin CMD prompt -

dir FOLDERNAME /a /o:n >0 & start notepad 0

Replace "FOLDERNAME" with the full directory name, e.g., "c:\users\username\desktop\FOLDERNAME"
