So I have a little story.

Ok, so I was  working on an Animation in Adobe Animate, and I had like 50% of the project completed but then something happened.

I was working on the file as usual but when I tried to save it, it said "Unable to save file....", I started to panic and left it open for a whilehoping the autosave would fix it(it did not). Then I checked my project folder and saw that there was a recovery file in there, so I calmeddown and just closed the file. But when I tried to open it again it said "An error occured while opening file <filename>". I tried EVERYTHING. Tried to use the Recovery file, did not work. Tried using a program called "DiskDrill" to try and fix the corruptedd file, did not work, and I tried every single suggestion I could find and none of em worked. So ONE MONTH of work, GONE!!!!!, btw I had multiple recovery files and all of em gave me the same dam error.

SO I just gave up and took some time off, after 2 days I decided to restart, after working for 2 more days IT GOT CORRUPTED AGAIN!!!!!

I have no idea why prety sure its not the hard drive cause the only files which got currupted are the animate files I have premiere pro as well and those files are fine among other files.

Tried to look for different ways to fix it(incase I missed something) but still nothing. I am sick and tired of this cause it seams like the only program suffering is animate, so much for a "professional" program.

Can some one please help me fix this(if its possible), and I would love to hear how I can prevent this from happening again.

Please I need help

save with increasing version number appended to the file name.  periodically close and reopen the latest version to confirm it's not corrupted.

Forgive me for sounding  like an idiot, but what do you mean by "save with increasing version number appended to the file name". Do you mean create multiple coppies of the file with increasing verion numbers or is it an online backup method(if so I would love to know how)

for project1.fla, save as project1_v000.fla.  after some minutes of progress sav as project1_v001.fla.  after more changes, save as project1_v002.fla etc.

 

every hour or so, close and reopen then latest fla.  if you're certain you will not need an early version, you can delete them all.

never heard of that.  maybe you're thinking of software capable of decompiling a working swf.
