Designed in Coreldraw 12 and after saving many times, got the message Temp drive or output drive may be full. Couldn't save to another file name and couldn't even copy to another. Or import the file to blank document. Searched the internet for patches and installed 3. I finally uninstalled and reinstalled the program. Tried to open the same file, but now I'm only getting The Application Recovery manager wizard. Other files that I've opened and tried to print, change the Colour management automatically.

Yes, if the file opens and it's blank, then it might be corrupted. My advice is to avoid copying other files to the partition where the original file was saved. Download CorelDraw Restore Toolbox - http://www.coreldraw.restoretools.com/ to another partition and install it somewhere else than C:\ drive. Use the built-in Wizard, then select ALL and the partition where the file was stored. After the results list appears, type CDR in the filtering box to locate the file. It should come up with its original name and a green marker in front of it. This indicates the file is in good condition. Right click it and save it to a different partition.
Increase the page file size to double which can be done from computer properties(system) -- advanced tab, open perfomance settings -- advanced and in virtual memory assign a higher value for each partition. Restart computer for them to take effect
I had a similar problem with Coreldraw 8. I used it successfully for years and loved it on varoius version of Windows, currently XP. I installed Coreldraw 12 and still had Corel 8 on the computer.
Now the problem: Corel 8 and Corel 12 could not open the Corel 8 clipart disk #2, only just down to the folder level. When I right clicked on the Corel 8 disk #2 clipart folder and checked the Path Properties it gave me a path other than the correct clipart disk location (in my case it should have read E:) BUT it was some weird location like MNfisherman referenced above and read: C:\Documents and Settings\AllUsers\Documents\Corel.! What the?! I knew the path should have read E: to access the clipart since the clipart was on the disk and in my CD tray, so I uninstalled Corel 12 thinking that was the problem since 8 had worked fine, then checked the clipart CD again but still no luck.
I then uinstalled Corel 8, so now I had no Corel program on hard drive. I put the Corel 8 clipart disk #2 in the computer knowing it would not open the clips but just to see if I could get beyond the folder level to see if the clipart files were there and yes I could. (I could only read the names of the files at this point because no Corel on computer) So I only reinstalled Coreldraw 12 figuring the later version would open the older version clipart and Success! It worked. I think my problem had something to do with the Corel 8 MF indexer, but I'm not sure. I had a red semi circle (like the Corel Set Up Semi circle) on all of the clipart folders instead of the regular yellowish fold so thats why I think it had something to do with indexer or other type of setup conflict). Now all of my clipart folders appear normal being the regular yellowish color folder. I suggest using a clean slate by unistalling all versions(Makesure you shut down the computer after each uninstall to get ridof all of the componentsof the program and then restart the computer) and then only reinstall the newest version. Hope this helps. Good Luck
You may need to empty your C:/temp folder. It's the accumulated content in the temp folder
that's giving you problems. The temp folder accumulates bits of
code from program installations, web pages, application errors, etc.,
and can cause problems if it gets too full.
Also, it's a good idea to keep at least 10% of your drive free. When you get below that amount, the disk
swapping which occurs during heavy program usage overtaxes your system
and can cause problems too.
