Any ways to edit the file RecoveryData ?

Good day fellow InDesign users.

 

in point form :

- had a file opened and saved on a server,

- server imploded. File is destroyed.

- have a backup copy (missing a day's worth of work) on my local disk

- Recovery data exists (made a backup copy of it)

- The file "RecoveryData" contains the path to the original and now very unavailable file

- tried to edit the path to said file to something like C:\Users\blabla

 

Indesign wont use the modified RecoveryData file.

 

SO is there a way to edit that file so it dont mess up the file integrity ?

 

Many thanks for your help ^^

 

U

    You could mount a remote drive at the old server's path (or a local drive using whatever the modern windows equivalent of ASSIGN is) and move the backup copy there so that when InDesign tries to use the old path, it still works...
