Major set back, that gives me ZERO faith in Adobe cloud.  I need my file.  Adobe, please contact me ASAP.

Thanks, John.  The link to the Help Center was indeed a good place to start, as were the prompts to move beyond the chat bot.

 

FWIW - To help anyone else who may have a similar issue, after contacting support and opting for the telephone support, the Help Center agent experienced the same issues I had from their end, accessed my computer and had no luck.

 

They did guilde me to https://assets.adobe.com/cloud-documents# where we duplicated the (very large) project/file.  This took a while, but late last night I went back to check and the file appeared with the same green check mark as the original.  Original still would not open, but the "duplicate file" did. 🤷🏻‍:male_sign:. 

 

I created a few new documents and parcelled out the assets from the "duplicate file" to a few separate files, saved locally, and then after merging part groups, reconstructed the original ands saved in local storage.  As far as I can tell, the duplicate still opens and the original does not.

 

This may not have been the place to post this comment / complaint / plea for help, but I am grateful to this community for guiding me the right direction.

 

Thanks!

 

Jon

you'll need to initiate contact with adobe support, and this is not adobe support.  these are user forums.

 

in any case, did you check your local computer for your photoshop file?  you did save it locally, didn't you?
