Adobe illustrator file corruption. What to do?

Hi, I've gotta problem with my Adobe Illustrator. Yesterday I was working in it. But today it doesn't want to open this file. It says that the file is corrupted. What's the matter? I did nothing wrong. I've saved it as usual and then switched off my PC. It's bad that I've got no backup. I had no idea that it could happen. Help me please to recover this file. I don't want to work all day again. The size of file is 42 428 kb.

Hi,
First check your illustrator. Could it open other files or not? Try to create new file and save it, then open again.
Try to open your corrupted file on another PC. Then if it doesn't work, it means that your file is corrupted. So you should try to restore it by Recovery Toolbox for Illustrator . You can download it here http://www.illustrator.recoverytoolbox.com/
Also you can read here about corrupted file recovery: http://www.filerepairforum.com/forum/adobe/adobe-aa/illustrator/513-adobe-illustrator-file-corruption

You can take your computer to a restoration company to get it fixed. Look in your trash, an old copy may have been saved. Simple thing, anything that moves will fail. Your hard drive is spinning it will fail, we just do not know when. Always back up your data. The programs are replaceable but your data as you know know is not.

You might try contacting Adobe for help.

Hello Philip.
Try a special program Illustrator Fix Toolbox https://www.fixtoolbox.com/illustratorfix.html
If it couldn't aid you:
1) Open the preferences file and look for the entry named "enableContentRecovery", change the value from 0 to 1. This turns on the feature.
2) Launch Illustrator and choose "File>Open". Select the file from which you wish to recover the roundtrip information.
3) Click "OK" .

Saved illustrator 10 file gets corrupted


Check for a damaged pattern, gradient, or custom color
To determine if the problem is caused by a damaged pattern, gradient, or custom color:

1. Choose Edit > Select All and change the fill and stroke to process black.
2. Perform task 4 again to determine whether the problem occurs in a new file that does not contain the patterns, gradients, or spot colors. If the problem does not recur, re-create the pattern, gradient, or spot color in the original file.

I use CS2 regularly and today, it freezes when I try to "open" or "place" files. I can't even minimize the page. Any ideas?


Double click on My Computer on your desktop and open C:>Documents and Settings > User >Application Data > Adobe > Adobe Illustrator CS2 Settings. (Your version of Illustrator will be in the foldr name.) Inside this folder is a file called AIPrefs. Drag this file to the trash, and restart Illustrator. Reset any custom preferences you want, and when you close Illustrator the preferences file will be regenerated.

You can also reset Illustrator's preferences by holding down Shift + Control + Alt while launching the program. If you get a dialog asking if you want to delete the Adobe Illustrator settings folder, click yes to proceed. Restart Illustrator. Reset any custom preferences you want, and when you close Illustrator the preferences file will be regenerated.
