Re: Files getting "corrupted" or stop working

Thank you for your help, you are probably right. My system has been behaving bit weird lately. Wouldn't be surprised if it is really dying, after all, it is quite old.

Anyway, I am going to try to keep it running for now until I can update it.

Thank you for your help.

Re: Files getting "corrupted" or stop working

Not sure what you mean there, and I am not sure how to use this code which you had in last answer. Just to try "file filename" rather than "mediainfo" because it was strange the mediainfo didn't return anything, and that mediainfo is easy to fool (an empty file confuses it) which make it "delicate"...

Re: Files getting "corrupted" or stop working

"mediainfo" returning nothing is certainly odd. So "mediainfo" is delicate and "file" is less so. Not sure what you mean there, and I am not sure how to use this code which you had in last answer. Anyway, I right clicked on two of the files and went to properties, and they show sizes, as shown in a...

Re: Files getting "corrupted" or stop working

Well, both of my pdf files are .pdf, and did work about a month ago. They might have the .pdf extension and still not be pdf files; that why I suggested the "mediainfo" commands: Well, this is what mediainfo gives me (see photo). I just find it so strange that I used these files not that long ago a...

Re: Files getting "corrupted" or stop working

I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary after rebooting. The computer took a bit longer, and I saw the screen connecting to the computer few times. But other than that... That sounds right. And it probably won't "fix" any corrupted files so much as prevent new files from getting corrupted. Doe...

Re: Files getting "corrupted" or stop working

Second, two pdf files have stopped working and the default pdf viewer says that there is no support for these files (application/octet-stream) The only time I've seen something like your symptoms, the disk was dying. This will force a filesystem check at boot, though it might not fix anything: sudo...

Re: Files getting "corrupted" or stop working

The correct way, "shut down" button and allow the computer to turn off.
