During daily use of computer, there are many things that can go wrong. And one of the most common difficulties we face is corrupted files that you can not open or worse the file is missing.

In this case, the problem may be related to corrupted system files that do not allow Windows to boot or load properly. On the other hand, there may be an error when you try to open a file which is damaged and no longer readable.

A file can corrupt because of many reasons. For example, a system file can be damaged as a result of a blackout or a serious crash.

A file can be corrupted by a program that crashes or closes with an error while you are working, or it can be spoiled by a virus that makes it unreadable.
