View Full Version : corrupt *.LWO file

05-19-2004, 11:26 PM
Need a little help. Was working in layout last night, when it crashed. After re-opening it, i got a error message: "object lodading faild". Same in Modeler - "error reading *.lwo".
Is there a chance to repair the corrupt *.LWO file, or is it gone forever?

Thanks in advance,

Your only hope is that you had the autosave function on in the hub, and that a pre-screwup version of your file is sitting in :-

c:\documents and settings\username\local settings\temp\lwhub

Just sort the files there by date & it will be one of the latest ones with a name such as 0001yourfilename.lwo

It is highly unlikely that you can repair the corrupted version of the file without some major programmer help.

You need to expect the odd file to get corrupted - save incrementally, and often, and all you lose is maybe an hours work.
