I downloaded my photos from the MobileMe gallery during the transition. They were downloaded as zip files. I found today that I am getting an error message saying the file is corrupt. Any suggestions? I am running 10.7.4.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    I guess I'm screwed. I am really upset about this. A couple of the photos were of my late 80 year old father in one of the few times he enjoyed himself,shortly before he died of vascular dementia last year. He was almost crippled and loved the time spent on the tiller of my sailing boat.


    If those photos could be recovered I would be very grateful. I've searched whatever few backups I have in the way of old hard drives and memory cards, but cannot find anything.

    I'm afraid that it's probable you won't be able to recover the photos from the zip file: and you certainly can't recover them from the server. It's never advisable to keep valued data in only one place - any storage system can fail eventuallly.
