    missing data file 33:4


      When I tried to open my project in AE7 I received an error message "missing data file 33:4" and it will not open this project that I have spent many many hours working on!  The project file appears to be corrupt.  Is there anyway that I can retrieve this file?  Is there any way I can retrieve any of the comps that were in this project file?  Help!

          You can try to import it into another project (just as you would import footage). That may salvage one or the other comp. If you used auto-save, of course picking out one of those files might be an option. Other than that, there is no way to restore all data. Therefore you really should make it a habit to save incremental versions. AE's project files are really small and there is no harm in having versions 1 to 100 to always have the option to go back...
