Re: Is it possible to recover a corrupted file?

Hi Tvpaint team,

Sorry to bother you but I had no responds to my previous post, so I'm trying again here, I prefer to revive a topic rather than creating a new one.
I can give you the file by private message and f you could fix it would be fantastic as this is my personal project.... thank you in advance !

This is my first entry in the forum, I have an issue with one of my file and I'm hopping that, somehow, with your magic skills you could fix it ! it contains the storyboard of my personal project.
To explain the problem, when I open the file, the loading goes until 94% and suddenly stop ( I tried on two different pc, one says that tvpaint has stopped the microsoft c++ runtime library and the other pc at 94% just closed the software with no mesage or anything).
At first I thought it was the microsoft c++ problem so I tried to fix it when I realised that actually my tvpaint software opens properly with no bugs, other files open properly too and I saved a test file and reopened it and again no issues. So my only conclusion is that it's actually this file that has a problem (which I don't really know what could have happen as I don't think it closed while saving or whatever).
If you could manage to save it that would be really really nice ! I have tvpaint 11 the standart version with windows 7.

Thanks hugely in advance,

Hello Marlène,

Thanks to our developper Jérémy, we have managed to restore most of the file you sent us.
A link has been provided to you to retrieve it.

Have a nice day ahead !

I had been working on an animation file which was saved properly and I didn't work on it for a couple of days. Now when I try opening the file it shows that it is loading upto 68% and then TV Paint simply closes and the file does not open.
It's weeks worth of work and I had begun colouring as well, could you please help me retrieve it?
Thank You
