I think I just blew my file by embedding every picture inside the file. It's a ~130 page long user guide with A LOT of pictures.
I saved it successfully a few days ago, and now tried to open it again to finish working with it. But then I get this error:
I'm a relatively new user to InDesign and didn't think much about it embedding all the stuff.
The file size grew to 11.5 GB. Which is a lot, but I was still able to work quite smoothely while it was open, so I thought everythings fine. System is Windows 7.
I've already searched the forums and didn't find any solutions on getting the file working again. Afaik it's the only file I have to use, no backups done. Biggest. Mistake. Ever. I know...
...but im positive somebody here might help. Thank you.
Not a good sign. I'll send you an upload link and you can send it to me if you like, but the best I may be able to do is confirm it won't open.
If that's the case, your best hope is probably markzware.com: Bad InDesign or Quark File Recovery Submission Form
If you mention on the takein form that you learned about the service here on the forum, and add a link to this thread, you may get a discount on your first recovery.
