I tried to recover the project file from recovery program and was recovered but the project file is size 0KB and when I open it show me message : the project appears to be damaged, it cannot be opened
When you work on a project, all files used in your project are relative ones. In other words, the files that you drag into Premiere Elements are not "loaded" into PRE, but instead pointers are used to point to where the file is stored. If you move a file from the pointer position, it will make the project look "broken." However, all that's happened is that either your PRE file or one or more of the project files has been moved. In planning a project I try to first put all of the project file and the PRE file in the same folder and be sure when I first save the PRE file, it is saved in that folder; not the default one that may be deep within the file structure.
If you put all of your files in their original location, everything will work fine.
Which version of the program was the project created in? Are you continuing to work on it in the same version of the program?
Have you installed a Windows Update recently?
Within the same directory folder as this .prel project file, you'll find a folder called Premiere Elements Auto-Saves. What happens when you open the most recent auto-saved version of your project from this folder?
