I recently restored my companies Sharepoint site. The restore basically replaced all information that we had previously but none of the documents are opening up.

When I open a Document Library in Explorer View I am able to see the data in the folder but am unable to open the files as sharepoint states that the file does not exist or is corrupt.

Please assist.

Thanks

How exactly did you do the restore?  Was the restore to the same farm or a different?

Did you have RBS previously?  If so, I'm a bit confused how it would go away.
