I had pics on d drive that got moved to c drive while i formatted d to fat32 from fat16. Now, i've moved the pics back to d drive and they've lost a lot of color and clarity...what gives? Thx

Nope...It's still set on high color 16 bit. All pics seem to now need sharpening. The text on some is almost unreadable. Maybe I should have copied them initially rather than move them...

There will be no loss of quality copying or moving files. They are digital information so are copied identically with no loss of information.

With jpeg files, I have noticed that some graphics programs give very different results when displaying the same file. Try using another program.

I think the problem was the fact that they were saved in fat16 format...then thrown into a fat32. Somehow, the pics are all screwed up and look like a lot of the color has been reduced...to the point of showing jpg artifacts. Bummer...

So, interacting with another formatting thread here, I think you're screwed if you've saved pics in a fat16 D drive, move them to a fat32 C drive, reformat the fat16 D drive to fat32, then move the pics back to D drive...The quality is all ruined, a lot of color is gone, and they all need to be sharpened once or so...ugh

Well, I was hoping someone could point me the way...Somehow, I didn't think the size of the file table mattered...
Anyone?
Thx
