After Effects 2022 Error 33:: 4 missing data in file

So whilst I was saving my project couple of days ago, After Effects decided to crash in the middle of the saving process, which also led my pc to crash. After turning my pc back on, I launched After Effects and then tried to open the .aep file that I've been working on for about a month and a half, after opening the file, an error saying '''Error 33 :: 4 After Effects Error: Missing data in file.'' Promped up, and now everytime I try to open up the .aep file AE keeps giving me the same error 33:: 4.

Guys I have honestly tried EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING. I have googled up solutions and nothing on about 10 pages of google search works. I've been through the official Adobe website and saw people post up the same issue as this one and I had tried the solutions, nothing worked. I went through japanese, chinese, Korean, EVERY WEBSITE ON EARTH and guess what, nothing worked. I don't know what to do and I honestly just feel like jumping out the window so I don't have to worry about this anymore.

It was too late to see that my AE had autosave on every 20 mins and I have already made the adjustments so that this never happens again. I also don't have any back up save files for whatever reason, and the only ones I do have are too outdated. I have done so much more in that project that for me to use a file that is 20 days older will not benefit me as much as getting the new file back.

I always save by pressing Ctrl + S, if After Effects made save files from that I would be saved because I literally press ctrl + s every time I make a change because I'm addicted to it.

Hence why I am seeking for help on this subreddit, hoping that an angel in desguise will help me fix this issue so that I can finalise this project and make my client happy. I really won't give up until I solve this issue, I just hope it gets solved soon...

If you guys have any solutions, ideas, advices (have been through so many forums that I now know to increment and save ctrl + shift + alt + s, and I will always do this from now on), honestly anything that can help will be much appreciated from the bottom of my heart...

Hey Deylan Gonzalez,

 

We're so sorry to hear this. Which version of After Effects are you currently using? Have you tried importing your current project to a new project? If that doesn't work, could you share your project file with us? We can get it looked at and see if it can get fixed. Also, please share your system specifications (OS, OS version, CPU, GPU, RAM). We're here to help.

 

Thanks,

Ishan
