How come we get file my be corrupted when trying to open a PowerPoint file?

by on July 25, 2010

Q: I work with an organization where individual upload various files to the site. We have a file on the site from one of the participants we cannot seem to get opened. Th file on the site indicates there is 2612kb of data in the file.

Here is the error message I received when I tried to open that file

PowerPoint cannot open the file Macintosh HD:Users:Israelwright:Downloads:Ceremonies FGG-2010 TEMPLATE.ppt. The file may be corrupt, in use, not a type recognized by PowerPoint, or the file extension may not match the internal format of the file.

Hope this is more information that might help.
