Hello,
we had to recover a complete project from an deleted SSD.
All files could be recovered, but unfortunately the Projects an not be opened or imported:
unable to import file: xxx as project (bad format or not readable).
Is there any way to repair these files or get at least single compositions out of it into a new project?

thx
Jan

You can always try to import them into an empty project, but otherwise there is little hope. AE's file format is unfortunately not very robust and even the tiniest bit of damage in the binary structure can have devastating effects. Usually the data is still there, but AE is unable to reconstruct the project structure...

thx for your answer,

I already tried importing but it didn´t work.
Really bad, that there is no way to fix broken projects.

Hi Jan,

 

Really sorry that happened.

As Mylenium said, chances for the project to be recovered are low. Especially with the projects that were deleted. However, we can give it a try. Please share one of the project files: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/share.html

You can DM me the download link if you don't want it to be public.

 

Thanks,

Nishu
