I have upgraded my OS from Windows Vista (32-bit) to Windows 7 Ultimate (32-bit). When I browsed some of my old pictures on another hard drive (D drive), the pictures are distorted. When I said distorted, the picture was separated into upper and lower part and on some pictures, a red or green layer was on top of the picture!
I have two hard drives in my computer! D drive was never touched during the upgrade. I only upgraded my OS in C drive! All my pictures are stored in D drive. I am pretty sure when I transferred these pictures from my DC to computer, they look clear and nice! I then checked my backup drive (external one) and those pictures just look nice!!
When I opened the same picture from D drive, the picture is just distorted! I then copy that picture out and view it on another machine which is running Windows XP, the picture was still distorted!!! I don't know why Windows will "change" my old pictures all of a sudden!! And I was very sad because I have many old pictures that are in the same D drive and now, I am scared to open them because I am worried that Windows will change my "good" picture to "distorted".
I have tried to copy 2 pictures from the backup drive and copy back to C/D drive to view. The thumbmail still showed distorted but when I opened the file, they look ok.
I have also compared the 2 files (distorted and non distorted) and everything is exactly the same (i.e Date created, date modified, file size, and all the photo info)
Anyone has experienced this?? Please help!!
Those are my lovely babies' pictures! I really don't know how the pictures are changed given that all the timestamp is correct!
I have also updated the display driver but no luck! Those distorted pictures are just for good
