File Exists But May Be Damaged

Q: File Exists But May Be Damaged

Hi, hope someone can help! I scanned a load of photos onto my friends computer (mac) and saved them on my memory stick, now i can't open them on my own computer (not a mac) keep getting a message saying "file exists but may be damaged" any ideas?????

Preferred Solution: File Exists But May Be Damaged

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

What OS are you using? If it is windows, go to control panel, select folder options and tell it to diplay extentions for file types.

What format are the pictures you are trying to view?

I have these pictures on my computer that I just cannot open. I am not exactly sure why they would be damaged. The only thing I can remember doing is copying these files to a CD. I cannot locate the CD to get better copies or anything. Is there a way to restore them??

I have a problem opening picture files. I had my computer cleaned up and they put everything into a back up file. Since this occurred I cannot open my previous picture files. It reads File exists but may be damaged. Can you help me figure this out, since the Computer store can't help. I am not sure if I also have to change the file format as the computor can't read the format. I have some exremely important pictures on there and I hope I have not lost them for good.

Running XP SP3 Professional
Dell E1705

Periodically I get this message when I try to close MS Outlook: "The file Normal already exists. Do you want to replace the existing file?"
Then when I try to close it, Word opens, and it goes through a series of other steps I have to do to close Word. Otherwise, Word and
Outlook function properly.

The problem will start happening consistently for awhile, then go away. It has been happening for a couple of years at least. I have had
maybe three malware attacks during that time that I have successfully remedied using the help from this site. The most recent was a
Trojan or file that was named "Win32/Winwebsec". And, after following the procedures on this site I was able to clear that and have had
no other problems. Then a few days ago I started noticing this issue again.

Any help will be appreciated.

A:The file Normal already exists. Do you want to replace the existing file?

I'm having a really strange problem and am wondering if anyone has encountered this. I tried to save a file and got an error on saving it, so I quit the program. The file appears as if it was never saved and doesn't show up in directory listing (GUI or cmd.exe).

However, if I try to rename any other file to that filename, it says "Cannot rename file, because file exists" and appends a number to the end. I cannot remove the number. This happens both in the GUI and cmd.exe as well.

So, basically cmd.exe del says the file does not exist, but ren says a duplicate file name exists....

Tried restarting as well.

I have no idea how to delete that "ghost" of a file so I can actually use the filename. I checked folder options and it's not a hidden file or anything like that - it just (doesn't) exist, but it does?

A:Cannot Rename File Because File (Doesn't) Exists

open disk management ..if you don't know how to find it, just right click on "computer" from the start menu and select manage, then scroll down to disk management to open it.
right click on the partition where you tried to save the file.. or C:\ if you don't have extra partitions or more than one HDD
select properties and click on the "tools" tab
click "check now" under error checking, and on the next pop up, check 'automatically fix file system errors' and press start.. select yes when asked if you would like to schedule for the next restart, then restart your computer and let the disk check run.
If that doesn't work there are other options

Hello everyone,

So here goes the story. I had a couple of school files I needed to put into a CD-R. I inserted the CD-R into the drive and attempted to burn these files onto the CD.

I didn't know that the CD-R already had files on it. The School files were finished burning but when I opened up the CD I could only see the previous files that were on there.

The previous files that were on the CD before the school files were just random video clips, all in the avi. format. Now half of the files on the CD are still fine, they play normally on Windows Media Player. The other half of the files didn't seem to work.

I believed it was a common CD recovery issue so I attempted to recover the lost files, little did I know the files weren't even real avi. files. Here is the part that confuses me. The files that are not playable that come out to say "File Format not supported" do take up space. Some take up 1.6 mb, some take up 700 kb. It confuses me because the files take up space and claim to files yet they do not play.

When I tried using programs to fix the files it said the files were not even true avi. files. They still take up space though. As I looked farther into this problem I came to realize that the hex of the corrupted files seem to be quite different then the actual files that do work.
The good ones had "RIFF LIST or something like that" but the bad ones just had aslasga5s4f6asf15a1f... you know what I mean.

I attempted to fix this... Read more

I have a exe file in the Folder call FChart 4.0.1. I would like to write the batch script to check if FChart.exe exists in the FChart 4.0.1 folder then copy it to specified folder. NOTE: the issue is that I would like to have it generic therefore I want to avoid 4.0.1 and only look for FChart folder and then file inside. I've written script but it doesnt work and its not generating any error as well

IF EXIST "VMFChart *\VMFChart.exe" XCOPY "VMFChart *\*" "%vmpath%" /E /F /G /H

Thanks in Advance

A:IF Exists in Batch File

Is the file name FChart.exe or VMFChart.exe? The text says FChart.exe, the command says VMFChart.exe. Same with the folder name.

Easiest way is to try to switch to the FChart* folder. If that succeeds, you then check for the file and copy it.
If FChart 4.0.1 is a folder under the Program Files folder, this should work:

@Echo Off
PushD %ProgramFiles%
PushD FChart* 2>Nul
If Errorlevel 1 Goto _NotFound
If Exist FChart.exe XCOPY "FChart.exe" "%vmpath%" /E /F /G /H
Goto _Copied
Echo FChartXXX folder not found in %CD%
Goto :EOF
Echo FChart.exe copied to %vmpath%
Note that if you have different versions (FChart 4.0.1 and FChart 4.0.2), it will switch to the the first one as listed in a Dir command that is sorted by name. Names with numbers aren't always listed in the same order as in Windows Explorer.

I have a DOS batch file that moves files from one directory and sorts them into separate folders alphabetically. The problem is existing files get replaced. I know I can add the -y switch to be prompted but there's too many prompts. Does anyone know how I can skip if file exists automatically? I don't see that option anywhere in dos move command. Was wondering if I can use the "IF" variable somehow. Like IF exists skip or no replace etc. Can't find answer anywhere on web. TIA any help. Here is an excerpt from my batch file:

move a*.* D:\!TLF\a

Hi guys,

I can't active my PC. For some reason when I run SLUI.exe (with the 3 parameter as well) it give the Cannot Create File error. I have looked around the internet and found topics saying to run chkdsk as well as sfc /scannow. But it doesn't work. For this reason, I cannot active my Windows and I think due to this I can't use the accounts created in this PC. (Only the administrator works 100%)

What should I do to fix this? A clean install is not an option because all my Sata ports (Other than the one that I am using for HDD) are dead and I have no proper DVD ROM. Is there a way to do this without the physical repair disk or should I get an ISO and just run that?

HiHoping someone can give me some guidance. I have had problems with Vista Home Premium SP1 crashing regularly - at least 3 times per day. Yesterday I decided to install SP2 - what a mistake. After taking hours it got stuck at Stage 3 - 75%. After following some instructions from other posts I managed to get it to starting reversing the changes - this however after hours and hours would never complete. Anyway I am now using the Windows disc system restore and this will not restore because of the following error:"Cannot create a file that already exists (0x800700B7)" I have been gradually moving to earlier restore points with no luck.Is there anyway to delete this file? or other steps I can take.Of course i'm worried that I will lose all my data - system has told me it needs to reinstall. I bought the external HDD yesterday arvo with the intention of backing first and then doing a reinstall haven't been able to do the back up as I cannot access the files - is there a way to do this?I can do basic things on my pc but when it comes to command prompts etc I need help so please be patient with me.ThanksCathy

A:System Restore won't complete - file already exists

Well the gods must have smiled upon me because after numerous reboots last night I was able to get into Windows and do a complete back up.

Sad news is pc now will not get past first screen of start up and F8 does nothing.

THe on error resume next disables the script stopping then the on error goto 0 makes it so it no longer will bypass stopping on an error.

I've encountered a bit of a hassle. I tend to save a lot of pictures, and it's getting to the point where everytime I find a new picture to save, I already have another picture with the same name. Then, of course, I need to rename or replace it. This is getting annoying because half the time I rename it, only to find out that the new name is also taken.

My husband downloaded what he thought was good software from an unknown website the other day and started to get virus alerts from our ZoneAlarm firewall.  We immediately did a Malwarebytes Malware quick and full scan but it didn't find anything which surprised me.  We decided to turn off the computer while we ate dinner and then look into it more with another malware/virus scan afterwards.  After the computer was restarted, we could no longer access the Internet if the ZoneAlarm firewall and antivirus was turned on.  The network troubleshooter kept pointing to a router/gateway problem but another computer had no problems accessing the internet wireless similar to the infected computer.  The infected computer also started getting security action center message that Windows Security Center service could not turn on.  To rule out the possibility that the Zonealarm firewall was corrupted, we uninstalled the firewall making sure it was cleanly gone and re-installed it.  We still had the internet access issue problem whether we were accessing it via the wireless or Ethernet connection.  A few seconds after we would stop the ZoneAlarm firewall the network connections would start having internet connection access.  We decided to get a new free firewall and antivirus software to we could continue to resolve the issue but have security protection.  We installed Comodo Internet Security and have no problems access the internet.

Norton detected a Trojan threat earlier, I followed the guidelines from the "this topic" link and then generated a HJT log. I also notice with Security Task Manager, certain processes appear and disappear periodically, i.e., lsass.exe, smss.exe, crsrr.exe and lots of other *.exe files. In "services", the start-up type of RCP is greyed-out that I don't have a choice to disable the service at start-up.

A:Download.trojan Threat - Cannot Delete B779v12[1].dll Because File No Longer Exists

Hello whyMeNow? and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I do not see any signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.A couple of comments:- if the file b779v12[1].dll does not exist why would it need to be deleted?- I do not believe that you can stop the RCP service with CheckPoint VPN client installed. CheckPoint would be able to verify that.- I do not know how STM reports the services running. Seeing a service come and go might just be the way STM handles the services. Try taking a look at the standard windows Task Manager and see if the services come and go along with what STM is showing. If not, then that's simply how STM is reporting the information.Additional information for non- operating system software can be obtained in the All other Applications forum. Someone theremight be able to better answer those questions.Cheers.OT

Quite often I receive a PDF file by email (e.g. a monthly bill) that I want to save with similar PDF files (e.g. former bills of the same company) in the same folder.

To avoid to write the complete file name, in the "save as..." menu I click on a former file with similar name (e.g. phone_bill_2013_January), then adapt the name (e.g. phone_bill_2013_February).

When I click "save", windows vista says "files already exists" although I modified the name.

I saw on www.vistax64.com that this problem was already discussed:

and it seems that this bug was already fixed.

How can I fix it on my computer?

Thank you very much for help.

A:Get "file already exists" on trying to save a new file (after rename)

Hello Abramo, and welcome to Vista Forums.

The issue is that it uses the original name when comparing files in the save to location. It doesn't actually get renamed until it's saved.

You should be able to use the "Copy, but keep both" option like below for this work. Worse case, you'll have to rename it again if it does keep the new name after being copied.

Hope this helps,

All of these were not even cabable of opening the file not to mention fix it. Converting the mp3 to different format was imposible as well.
The size in MB and lenth of the mp3 file is correct, so there must be somethig in there to recover I guess .since the damage was caused by incorrent finishing of the record.

I'm working with a piece of software with a proprietary data export generator.
The problem I ran up against is that whenever I tried to save the file to the desktop at a customer site, it generated the title message, even when there was no file of that name. I tried creating an empty file with the name seeing if it would overwrite that, but no go. I rebooted, I reinstalled the application, finally I tried writing to a different location and that worked.
In Windows (XP Pro SP3 to be specific), how does a dll determine that a file exists and needs to be overwritten? Where do I start looking to resolve this should it happen again? Support at the provider has no idea. I can't go to the programmer: the only hope is that there is something I can check in Windows itself.
Thank you.

A:"Overwrite file?" when no file exists?

"how does a dll determine that a file exists and needs to be overwritten?"

The file doesn't determine it, Windows does.
You say that no such file exists to be overwritten, but it may be a hidden file.
In which case, only by configuring Windows to "show hidden files" will you see it.

I need to know where and what type of drivers I need for this problem CD damaged file needs drives see picture

A:damaged file need drives

That appears to be a very old CD ROM.

It could need the motherboard drivers, or possibly its that old that its one that is supplied from a soundcard interface, in which case it needs the sound card drivers.

You really would have to give us a clue as the what the PC hardware is though.

Hi guys and gals,

My prob is a bit of a saga!

I defragged my Win XP Media PC a few days ago and then I noticed a clicking noise coming from the hard drive, I called PC servicecall (managed to find a freephone number!!!!) and the chap suggested I do a scandisk, he said to call back with the diagnosis later.

After the PC did two scandisks I managed to stop it when it was about to do a 3rd, I rebooted the PC and it loaded with no 'start' button or clock on the taskbar, so I rebooted. Then I got a message saying 'it can't load as a file was missing or corrupt windows/system32/configuration/system' it said to put in the original CD and type 'r' to repair.

Well the PC didn't come with any CD's and I only have one that I made after I'd had the PC for a month - a recovery disk.

So I called PC Servicecall back and told the guy what happened and I've got another harddrive arriving tomorrow - trouble is I need to get the info from my hard drive before I send it back to them.

I've looked at MS support site and there's options to do a manual repair (I'll copy and paste info here)
Method 1: Replace the SYSTEM Hive
Method 2: Restore the SYSTEM File from the SYSTEM.ALT Backup File
Method 3: Reduce the Size of the SYSTEM File
Method 4: Restore the SYSTEM Hive from Backup

Which all sound hunky dorey but I don't have any original bootable CD (the PC doesn't have a floppy drive), so I can't type 'r&#... Read more

I have an important file, created in Word 97, that I need to use. I saved it and had been opening it easily to work on it but all of a sudden it seems I cannot open it. I cannot find it anywhere except in the previously opened list when I open Word, but when I click on it there to open it I get the messages "this file cannot be found" or "the directory name is not valid". When I search for the file it comes up but when I try to open it I get the message again "this file cannot be found". I would be so so grateful to anyone who can help me open this file, recover it, repair it or whatever I need to do in order to have it back! I am sure I have not deleted the file and I am using Windows 7.

Thank you in advance,


A:Is this file lost or damaged?

It appears that you have deleted this file, and the search is finding the "Recent Link".

A:XP has damaged my data file??

Sorry to hear that you lost some files, but before you do any upgrades or clean installs you should always backup your important files.

Could you see the icons of the spreedsheets???

If you could there is still hope of recovering your files. But if you unistall Xp you will lose everything.

Hey all, I dropped my hard drive with a lot of .mov footage on it and thus sent it to a data recovery company to retrieve everything. After getting it back, most of footage was good, but a few files don't open in quicktime(or any program... it just says, 'this is not a movie file.') Is there any file recovery businesses around? or software that I can try?
