I have a problem with the Illustrator file I was working on. I cannot open it, and the icon of the file is a bit opaque with a grey cross. If I try to move it, a message says that the file is unavailable. But still is not an empty file. This is the property window:
Also, I stopped working around 01.00, so I don't know why the last access is at 02.36.
Is there any way to recover the information?
It's probably toast, but try this:
From Illustrator, try open recent file.
Create a new file and try to place the corrupt file into it.
Try to open it in Acrobat.
Change the extension to .pdf and try to open it in Acrobat and Illustrator.
here's a link you can try:
Thank you for your answer.
Unfortunately, in all cases the computer says that the file is unavalaible. And I could not try the trick on the webpage you suggested, since I could not locate the proper file.
Thank you anyway.
Where is (was) the file located? On your hard disk?
Do you have any backup software running that moves files around?
Have you checked for viruses?
And please tell us all the details about your system setup.
