I keep having a crash error whenever I try to open my InDesign document. I guess Indesign CC did not close properly and the file created a 'locked indesign file'. I deleted the locked file many times but still, unable to open the .idd file. Please help. I tried all of the following already:
1. reset my preferences for InDesign to default manually (through file explorer)
2. uninstall and re-installed InDesign CC
3. reset the computer
4. created a copy of the file and tried opening it
5. deleted the locked indesign file (many times)
The only thing I haven't tried is converting the file to quark and converting it back to indesign. Its way too expensive for me to download the plugin and software to do it. Plus, i would like to get a legitimate solution to the problem in case this happens again in the future.
If the file is corrupted you have to go back to your last backup. Anything else will cause a lot of problems or if you go to a company which does recover corrupted files it will cost you a lot.
Yes it seems like that's the case. My frustration is, I'm paying for a software service to Adobe, but it seems this issue has been ongoing. I found a similar discussion dated back in 2010 (Can't open .indd file suddenly!)
The issue still has not been resolved. I was hoping maybe by 2016 there would be a solution.
