Corrupted files are files that no longer work properly. You can repair a corrupted file with the correct software, If you try to open a file and it does not do what it's suppossed to do then it is probably corrupted. If the corrupted file is an important system or program file, Windows or another programs will warn you that there is a problem and might recommend that you reinstall or uninstall the program. The most common reason why corrupt files happen is when something goes wrong when a file is being created or saved. For example, the program saving the file might crash, or your computer might lose power just as the file is being saved.
