Software Question


damaged PSD photoshop CS3 file?

09/30/2014 1551 views
Hey!

While working on a tileset for 2KH, Vista display drivers started behaving strange (black screen for a second, then screen comes back with a recovery message )

I successfully saved my work, right before a complete system crash, but once I restarted Vista, and tried opening my work to continue, Photoshop gave me a warning about some data being corrupted and opened my file as a black, one layer document  I tried several times with no success so far

Usually, i'm quite good at versioning and archiving tilesets, but ironicly, I've been working close to 2 months on that single file, without archiving it ( it's a 100+ tiles on a single PSD ) so i'm really depressed about loosing all that work 

I tried several PSD repairs softwares available on the web with no success : I was wondering if any of you guys knew a way to save a PSD with corrputed data ?

If you use a magnetic drive you can try some recovery tools, they can bring back alot!
Just remember not to over write and it is not clear which version (how old) you are recovering...you can try.

But it sounds like a learning curve the hard way...

Sounds like your PC was suffering a memory corruption and although you think your work was saved successfully, what was actually saved was a trashed memory image. As Dedenker observes, when regular backups are not made, the IT gods will ensure a suitable punishment is handed out.
