Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

I have a 1GB file that is corrupted and I want to fix it?

I want to save the file but i cant move, copy, or compress it because the "file is corrupted or unreadable". I found the problem when attempting a defrag job. whats the best way to save the file?
Its on an usb external HD. Its an archival file from a DVD build job. its a .VOB file.
is this just the first file of many that are corrupted, are there more?
i tried renaming it. (while leaving myself a .txt to explain it later if i ever need to access it in the future)

I have save an excel file on desktop. When I clicked to open it, it did not show contents and a message was poped up saying that there is a problem of sending command to the program.

Try make a copy of the file and open it in another computer. Then, save the file as a old Excel file.
Maybe... but other possibility is that the file is corrupted :-(

Sir, how to compress 1gb file in to 100mb.

hi, compressing data is possible at a rate of 10 to 20 percent but compressing a file of 1024mb to 100mb is quite impossible and if it was it would take much time to be decompressed .

hope that this not will be helpful and don't forget to rate

kind regards

Ntoskrnl.exe still on computer when i have copied a new version

Reboot from the CD-ROM, and select "repair", and, at a command-line prompt, enter: CHKDSK C: /F

Windows will shutdown, and reboot, and run the "check-disk".
This may fix the "corrupt" problem.
