The dropbox link you posted also does not work may be because it a bad file. Rename your file "cerebro_2-Recuperado.psd" to "cerebro_2-Recuperado.xyz" and put that on dropbox. Most likely the file has been corrupted was not written correctly. I feel you should run a disk utility on you disk drive to see if there are errors that need to be corrected.
I successfully downloaded the file and, yep, Photoshop doesn't want to play with it. I threw it at GIMP and got a little further, a thumbnail and a message:
Which means what? Courtesy of http://www.cprogramming.com/tutorial/compiler_linker_errors.html —
A second cryptic message is the "unexpected end of file". What's going on here? Why would the end of the file be "unexpected"? Well, the key here is to think like the compiler; if the end of the file is unexpected, then it must be that it's waiting for something. What could it be waiting for? The answer is usually "closure".
Basically, the file is corrupt; something got left out when Photoshop compiled the PSD and now Photoshop can't read it, nor, I suspect, can anything else.
Hopefully you still have the materials available to recreate the file because I believe this one has joined the Choir Invisible.
Hello JJMack, first of all, thank you to answer and try to help me. This is a work that I'm working several days on it, any chance to recover something its already a light to me!
So, I've done what you said to me to do, I renamed the file as " cerebro_2-Recuperado-xyz", and here is the link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/60on5wzu6dwnibn/cerebro_2-Recuperado.xyz?dl=0
I will run a disk utility on my disk as you said.
Hope you can help me,
thank you !
If you are using Windows, there are Shadow copies that might have your file. Here is a free tool called Shadow Explorer that may be able to recover an older copy of your file. It's very easy to use.
Well Thank You PBArtattack to try to help me too!
if I still have some material to work in this file, what you suggest me to do? How can I recover this material to do a new archive with this left information saved?
Thank you again,
I was able to open the file in Photoline. Nice brain, btw!
To fix it yourself, download the trial version of Photoline, and open the file. All the layers are there, and you should be able to copy / save everything you need.
Btw, some parts seem to be corrupted, but at the very least you will not have to start from scratch.
AND! Save versions! And save often! That will prevent this from happening again.
That's pretty good, Herbert. Does it do anything for all corrupted PSDs, or are some just total train-wrecks?
I am unsure - this is the first corrupted Photoshop file that I tried to open in Photoline, because I have never experienced corrupted PSDs myself (knock on wood), and users on these forums that do experience them never seem to be willing to share the actual files with the community (which is understandable).
In Photoline it opens like this (notice the empty layers here and there):
It would be nice if Photoshop would at least attempt to open a semi-broken PSD. If Photoline can do this, why not Photoshop? .
