I just crashed and my file is now corrupt. it's a huge file and i don't have an up to date back up. Are there any tricks to getting it back?
Here are two posts that might be helpful:
Thank you but nothing worked/
I removed your signature as it posted private information - can you please disable your signature if replying by email?
What Operating System are you on?
For Mac - most have Time Machine
if not there are some 3rd party software that claims it can recover files
If you're on a PC
Restore deleted files and folders or restore a file or folder to a previous state.
To restore a deleted file or folder
Open Computer by selecting the Start button
, and then selecting Computer.
Navigate to the folder that used to contain the file or folder, right-click it, and then select Restore previous versions. If the folder was at the top level of a drive, for example C:\, right-click the drive, and then select Restore previous versions.
You'll see a list of available previous versions of the file or folder. The list will include files saved on a backup (if you are using Windows Backup to back up your files) as well as restore points, if both types are available.
Note: To restore a previous version of a file or folder that's included in a library, right-click the file or folder in the location where it's saved, rather than in the library. For example, to restore a previous version of a picture that's included in the Pictures library but is stored in the My Pictures folder, right-click the My Pictures folder, and then select Restore previous versions.
Thank you for removing my email signature. i tried to do it but failed.
I am on a mac OS Big Sur 11.4
I use time machine for hard drive back ups.. but unfortunately i hadn't backed up for 2 days.
In the link that Barb post - see no.2 - there's an email address to send corrupt files.
That's probably your best bet.
thank you. I sent it a few hours ago and no response yet.
We'll see if we can get this escalated for you.
thank you! i will have to recreate the file tonight if i can't get it fixed. so much appreciated.
I'm still waiting to see what indesign can do. do you think you can find out if they've taken a look at the file?
I don't have any access to anything like that.
So should i give up do you think?
