Thread: File Not Found Check the File Name and try again.

    Default File Not Found Check the File Name and try again.

    Irfanview Version 4.52 64 Bit
    Operating System Windows 10 64 bit with all updates installed

    I have been using Irfanview since Windows 98. I use it mainly to view photographs I've taken and crop or otherwise reduce sizes. I don't do anything else with them.

    In the past few weeks when I go to save an edited photo, which should ask to overwrite the existing photo, I just get a box that says

    File not found
    Check the filename and try again

    It is absolute nonsense since the photo is open in Irfanview and I can also clearly see it in thumbnail in the appropriate folder.

    I have tried saving to another folder, say documents instead of pictures with the same result.

    I have uninstalled and reinstalled Irfanview.

    I have run as Administrator and not, but the same thing keeps happening.

    It is so frustrating because I cannot understand why this should be happening. Irfanview is the only picture edit software that I use.

    I wondered if anyone could shed any light on this at all.

    Not an answer here, but a few questions that might shed some light.

    Have you tried saving to an exeternal drive, like for example a USB stick?
    What format is your image (jpg, bmp, RAW, ...)?
    Does it also happen when the thumbnails view is closed?
    How many images in the folder? hundreds? thousands?

    Generally I noticed that editing images with thumbnails open slows down IV.

    If you're loading them from a phone, copy them to your hard drive first, then edit them.

    This earlier post may have the solution.
