Retrieving Pictures Saved As DAT Files

  • 0

We saved years of Pictures to two USB Flash Drive Cruzer Glide. Somehow they were converted to DAT files when saved and are now not viewable. How do I turn them back to Camera Generated JPEGS?

  1. Firstly go to “Control Panel > Folder Options > View”. On the list un-tick ‘Hide extensions for known file types’. For security and other reasons it is best left that way.

    Check one of your .dat files again and see if the file extension remains the same.

    Copy one .dat file off the flash drive onto your desktop. Assuming it still only shows a .dat extension then change it to .jpg instead. Double click it and let us know if it opens, or what exactly happens.

    Always pop back and let us know the outcome – thanks
