How to fix Invalid File Errors: Steps to Fixing Invalid File Errors on Your Computer

 

What Is an Invalid File Error?

Invalid File Errors occur when you’re attempting to open a file or program on your computer and for some reason, the file won’t open. The error may appear as: Error XXXX: Invalid File Type.

 

What Causes an Invalid File Error?

Invalid File errors occur when a file extension is missing, broken, or unrecognizable, or it can occur when a user error, a corrupt un-installation or installation, or a virus damages file associations in the Windows registry.

 

How to Fix an Invalid File Error

There are few options to fixing an Invalid File error, depending on what the root cause of the issue is.

Solution 1: Delete and Resave the Invalid File

Steps:

  1. Locate the invalid file.
  2. Highlight the file with your cursor.
  3. Right click on the file.
  4. Select Delete.
  5. When prompted if you want to delete the file, click Yes.
  6. The file will be removed from your computer.
  7. Locate the source of the original file and resave it to your computer if you need the file.
  8. If it still isn’t working, request that a new file be sent to you from the originator.

Solution 2: Move all Files Except the Corrupt File to a New Folder.(When you receive an Invalid File error when attempting to remove a file from your computer and the steps in Solution 1 above won’t work, try this solution.)

Steps:

  1. Locate the folder of the corrupt file.
  2. Remove all contents from the folder to a new folder with the exception of the corrupt file.
  3. Delete the folder that contains the corrupt file.
  4. Locate the source of the original file and resave it to your computer if you need the file.
  5. If it still isn’t working, request that a new file be sent to you from the originator.

Solution 3: Download a Program that will open the File Extension (.pdf, .jpg. etc.)

Steps:

  1. Determine the file extension of the Invalid File.
  2. Locate the software program you need to download so your operating system recognizes the file extension.
  3. Download the program.
  4. Open the file.

If one of the above solutions doesn’t fix the File Invalid issue, you can also consider the following:

  • Try changing the file extension to an extension supported by your operating system. However, this often converts the file so that it’s unreadable in some instances, but not always.
  • If you’re getting a File Invalid error for a CD-ROM, CD, or DVD, you want to confirm that your computer has a program that supports the file types on the discs. In many instances, it may not.

One of these solutions should resolve an Invalid File error on your computer. Let me know if you have additional questions. Good luck!
