Dear All, 

 

Just happend some extreamly situation, InDesing just delete from indesigne file - jpg, links, vectors, texts... Not from all pages, just several, during the work. And I just can not recover the files. Also, i've put linked image on one page and indesign do not preview that image although link is right (when i click to links, there is right link in right folder, just without preview in indesign). Please tell me how to recover file asap. Thank you.

In InDesign 2021, try this: File > Save As to make a second copy of the file with a different name. Leave your file open, in case this doesnt work. File > Open the 2nd file. If it has damage or corruption, InDesign will try to repair it. After some seconds, it will open. With this new file that is auto-repaired, inspect to see if it is working correctly. If not, you still have your previous file open and can try something else.
