More than likely your file is toast, burnt toast.

What file type did you save as? You could try opening in Acrobat or Distiller or even photoshop, but if Illy can't recover the file, it's probably gone.

I don't have access to any magic file recovery apps, I'm an end user like you.

You didn't answer my question, or say if you tried my suggestions...

It doesn't open in Acrobat DC?

That's bad. How large is the filesize now?

 

Did the computer crash while you were saving the file? Or while it was saving automatically?

 

For your file you can try this: https://illustrator.recoverytoolbox.com/

 

And maybe staff can help @Ashutosh_Mishra 

 

To avoid this in the future:

1. don't save directly to a network or on removable disks, such as USB drives.

2. save early, save often, save different version on different harddisks

3. turn on Time Machine if you have a Mac

4. Make backups of your disk regularly

5. and for the last 5 minutes of your work turn on auto recovery and hope that it works.
