    Hi guys!

    I am currently experiencing problems with opening files on my 2014 Macbook Pro. When I double click to open any sort of file; mp3, jpg, docx etc. is pops up with the "file is damaged move to trash". The weird thing is, that I can open the files in preview or through their respective apps like Quicktime and Word. So I know for sure that the files aren't damaged. Is there anyway to resolve this? I've tried googling my way around and done the basic troubleshooting things like resetting SMC, PRAM and messing around with some settings.

    I am currently running the latest version of Sierra.

    Even these freshly taken screenshots couldn't be opened normally.

    I wonder if your drive is corrupt or drive subsystem failing. You can try doing a backup, and then using Disk Utility to check the disk for errors.

    Back up personal files. Boot via Command +R and reinstall the OS. That option will save your personal file and hopefully, solve your permissions problem.

    Yes, it's been like this for a couple of weeks :)

    I'll try that right away!

    Run the diagnostics aka apple tools yet? Could be drive or controller failure.

    Call Apple to replace it...
    Must be the SSD or Controller.
    At least you can reproduce it.

    One more thing...
    How did you get these files to the MacBook?
    Maybe some adapter file transfer fault?
