    Scan it on your PC.
    Malwarebytes, or any free AV.

  6. hey i have another question my folders changed to a file type right? so i just want to know if my old folder is now in .CHK FORMAT or NOT?
     
  7. Try "Show hidden files and Folder" sa Folder Option. Kung hindi parin baka nag corrupt na yung files mo kasi yung Mem Card hindi naka right catching. What you need to do is to backup your remaining "ok" files then Format your Mem card and recover your lost files with a software recovery.

  10. hmm... It seems like corrupted ang mga data mo. Maaaring virus yan. Try to open the drive s ibang pc. Tingnan mo kung un p din lalabas. If all else fail,try using easeus recovery master. Hanapin mo n lang s mga torrent ang link. Mgandang pang recovr ng files un.
     
  11. thanks for your reply.
    "easeus recovery master"
    tanong lang yan ba mismo yun saktong name ng program na hahanapin ko?
    ang dami kasing lumalabas eh baka pwede naman i post mo d2 yun direct download link
    baka kasi iba yun ma download ko eh thanks
     
  12. easus data recovery wizzard professional ang pangalan ng program. ikaw na lang maghanap sa torrent at magdownload. nasa middle east kasi ako kaya hindi kita mabigyan ng link.
     
  13. ok thanks sir i will try this easus data recovery wizzard professional i hope this software can help me to get back all the photos in my Images folder was changed now to file type..
     
  14. Its worth the try. saka tried and tested ko sya sa mga corrupted na hard drive at usb. narerecover talaga..
     
  15. suggestion lang ha... dun nga sa folder options check mo yung show hidden files and folders. sa baba nun may naka check na hide protected operating system files, uncheck mo lang yun at check mo uli ang memory card mo.
     
  16. Please or Register to view links pasensya na ah wala kasi ako alam masyado sa computer pwede mo ba ipaliwanag sakin kung san ako dapat pumunta or ano ang dapat ko gawin para makita ko un folder options na sinasabi mo at magawa ko yun suggestion mo thanks
     
  17. open mo memory card mo tapos press alt sa keyboard then sa toolbar click on "TOOLS" then click "FOLDER OPTIONS"

  20. Hi guys i just want to say thank you for all the people who read and reply in this topic i really appreciate your help guys to solve this problem.

    Anyway I'm so happy to say i solve my problem now guys.
    i used this program called "ZAR or Zero Assumption Recovery version 9.2"

    how i solve this problem?

    First: i download the ZAR 9.2 and i install this software in my Drive:C

    2nd: i just want to recover only all the photos and videos in my 2 folders changed to file type in my memory card. the name of this 2 folders was converted now to file type is: "Images and Video clips" folders.

    so after i download and i install this software i connect my memory card to the storage device of my computer using my card reader and the drive or the letter of my memory card is letter: F or Drive: (F:)

    then after that i open the Zero Assumption Recovery software and i choose the "Image Recovery (Free)" option to recover my files. then i scan the drive letter of my memory card in Drive:F and this software is very fast because i finish to scan my memory card i think in 5 minutes only.

    3rd: after my scan is finish i see 2219 files in the list of my ROOT folder
    and i save all this 2219 files i recover in my Local Disk (D:) or drive:D

    then after i finish to recover and save all my files in my drive:D
    i close this software and i go to my drive:D to check all the files i recover

    here the result of all the files i recover.

    first of all i just want to recover only all the photos and videos inside in my 2 folders changed to file type.

    so in my 2219 files i recover i copy only my 702 photos because this photos is very important to me. this 702 photos is the all photos inside in my "Images folder" was changed to file type. and i forgot to say i see also some of the photos i already deleted in my memory card but this is not important to me now because i have already the copy of that photos so this is the reason why i deleted this photos in my memory card. i just want to say only i recover also some of the photos i already deleted in my memory card. and i copy also all the videos i recover but all the videos i recover is not working anyway i have the copy of that 44 videos in my desktop so this video is not important to me now because i have the copy of that videos.

    i recover 2219 files and the reason why i save only the 702 photos because some of the photos i recover i have already the copy of that photos so this is the reason why i deleted some of this photos and i save only 702 in my photos because i want to recover only this 702 photos in my folders changed to file type because i don't have the copy of this 702 photos

    the total result: i have 2219 files i recover and i save only the 702 of my photos and in this 702 photos i saved i have some problem only in my 14 photos all this 14 photos have Thumbnails but the problem when i try to open my 8 photos i can't view the photos i mean when i click open i see only "Drawing failed" and no photos show in my "windows picture and fax viewer" and the other 6 photos have also the Thumbnails but when i open this 6 photos i can view the photos in my "windows picture and fax viewer" but the problem the photos show only the half of photos and the other half of photos is have problem i see only the blank with gray backround for example in the left side of photos is ok without problem but in the right side of the photos i see only blank with gray color. another problem all the video i recover is not working i mean i can't play all the videos i recover but in my case this video is not important to me because i have already the copy of that video in my desktop but the "Good News" is in the total of 702 photos i saved the 688 of this photos is working fine without any problem the photos have Thumbnails and i can view also the full size of my 688 photos.

    so in total 2219 files i recover and i save only 702 photos and the 688 of my photos 100 % working i recover perfect this 688 photos without any problem but the other 14 photos is not working and have some problem and also all the 44 videos i recover is not working but the good news this software 100 percent can recover your photos in the folders changed to file type.

    NOTE: first of all guys i am not promoting this software i just want to share only my experience about how to solve this problem and what software i use
    so i post some tutorials how to recover your photos in the folder changed to file type to help some people have the same problem like this and if you search in internet guys you will see many people have the problem about the folders changed to file type and many of this people searching for the software can solve this problem but in my research i cannot see any user solve this problem and if you read some topic in other forum about this problem no user solve this problem so if i am correct i think i am the first user solve the problem about the folders changed to file type.

    To all people have problem like this about how to recover your photos in the folders changed to file type you can try this "Zero Assumption Recovery" to recover your photos i will recommended that software because i try this software to recover and get back all the photos in my folders was changed to file type. and another one just like what i said before i also recover some of the photos i already deleted in my memory card so if you accidentally deleted your photos and you want to recover your photos you can also try this software.. Zero Assumption Recovery is very nice software and another good news guys the "Image Recovery (Free)" options of this software is 100 percent free (tested and 95% working)..

    and last guys if you have problem about computer and internet don't give up always remember nothing impossible in this computer world you need only this 5 things..
