I need the best decompiler I can get my hands on. I just lost 8 hours of work to this piece of S%#T program after it crashed and reduced my file to 4kb of unmountable trash.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Free would be nice, but I've lost hundreds of dollars worth of time here, so I'll pay if necessary.
We really can't advocate SWF decompiling. It can be used to capture commercial copyright materials.
As with any application, not just Flash, we've all lost documents for various reasons. You really should save versions of files so in the future you don't lose a huge amount of work. In folders you'll be working often you can even have your OS make shadow copies (win) or time machine (mac) so you can revert as frequently as you want. It's worth it.
