HELP!!! File Damaged!!!

Recommended Posts

Urgent help needed. Anybody knows how to recover damaged file?

The pop up I get is "This file is damaged. It will open with as much information as possible" and Vectorworks will quit.

How big does it say the file is (in the Finder)?

Have you tried continuing past the pop up, opening the file, and then Saving As...?

The traditional method is to workgroup reference in the file to a new blank document. After you get what you can from the file, then break the reference while retaining the information in the file. This will not get you any sheet layers in VW12.

If this is not enough or does not work the only other option is to wait until Monday and send the file to Tech Support at NNA and see what they can do with it.
