Did you check if you cleaned the files-folder by accident?

From the link you pm'ed me i assume that the image files are broken. This often happens when you upload or download the files in the files folder via ftp in ascii-mode. You should do all transfers in binary mode, see: Knowledge Base - Transferring attachment files with Filezilla
If you don't have a correct copy of the file, they are lost ...

As far as attachments are concerned:

Attachments are stored in the /download folder, so if you deleted this one in the process ... ;)
You could try to restore the deleted download folder or its content from your backup.
(Don't delete the current one - back it up, just in case ... ;) )

Provided your image files aren't corrupted (see canonknipser's post).

No, they are stored in the /files-Folder (resp. the folder specified in the acp as "Upload directory" in section "Attachment setting" - this directory is by default called files)
Edit - the download-folder contains the "Display-wrapper" for the files, which is called "file.php"
