A few days ago, I deleted "RECOVER_" files from my computer and also some images which were part of the files, and then they got corrupted. So I recovered the "RECOVER_ files and today as I was saving them... they got corrupted AGAIN. And now I cannot access some of the files anymore because they keep saying "a problem occured when opening"

 

Can you guys help me?

to fix a corrupted fla:

 

rename to a rar

open in winrar

repair the rar

rename to a fla

open the repaired fla in animate

 

that works about 10% of the time

assign a custom keyboard shortcut, if there are none.

 

then use the cc desktop app to uninstall animate and (this is key) remove animate preferences.

 

reinstall animate 

 

confirm the custom keyboard shortcut was reset

 

if it was, retry the save to desktop directory.
