Hi guys!!

I need to edit the text in a PS file that I worked on about a month ago. I've opened it plenty of times and it opens just fine. Now, when I open it, it only shows one layer: a black background labeled "background." I've had a friend try to open it on her computer and it does the same thing, but the file size still is large enough to assume there's data buried in there somewhere. Is there any way of recovering this?  Below is a Google Drive link to the psd for anyone willing to give it a go. I'm worried I won't be able to recover it

Any and all help is appreciated!

Thank you!

Hi! Thank you for your quick reply!

I'm not sure why it flattened my layers into a black background. I usually choose not to flatten images, and certainly not into a black background. I've googled the problem and other people have had the same problem but I can't seem to find a solution.

I don't believe I have a backup version. I've been searching, but I only have jpgs of the previous drafts

So there is no way to get a psd of just the old information before PS flattened my image like this?

Thanks again, by the way! I appreciate anyone willing to help.

Same issue here, Adobe needs to fix their garbage product instead of dumping their money into ads with Billie Eyelash
