  1. Can I repair damaged or corrupt photos or jpeg files I have saved on a disc? When I try to view image it will show mostly grey with just little random portions of the image I’m trying to view. Yet the first time I tried to view then on a new computer was able to. Next time I tried to view them got the grey image again. I can some times still view the little thumbnails before I chose which one I want to view. I hope you can help me fix this issue.
