NegativeSpace Posted September 6, 2011 Share Posted September 6, 2011 (edited) So I have a few folders of pictures, -very important ones-, that contain some image files that have mysteriously been changed from their original *.jpg file types to *.jpg.mta file types, and their thumb nails show as generic icons. Only some of the pictures have been affected, across multiple folders. I have not been able to find anything useful about .mta or .jpg.mta. I have no idea how this happened. I do have backups of the affected files, but I'm worried that the problem might continue to other pictures which are not regularly backed up, or other files which are not .jpg. Does anyone know how this happens, and if there is a way to restore the original files without dragging out the backup disk? What is the .mta file type? After looking again, I have realized that .avi files are also affected the same way. Also, some of the files show as *.mta, and some show as *.jpg.mta Edited September 6, 2011 by NegativeSpace Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
