Hi,

Announcing a catastrophe: vital document failed to save, and the message " I/O error trying to read or write to disk [-36] " was displayed. Then when I tried to open the file the message " Bad file format. [70] " was displayed.

I assume that this was caused by some kind of problem in memory while working with the file, but is there any way that I can recover this corrupted file ?

The document took days to prepare and I can't face the prospect of starting from scratch!

pls help !

Quark is such a piece of work. It may, or may not work, but try importing it into InDesign.

hmmm...

cheers,  will download InDesign - it might be a step forwards even if it doesn't import the corrupted file.

I guess theres no magic wand solution then.

I'll wait  a bit longer and then close the question - splitting points to any useful contributions

InDesign works only for qxp up to 4.0 or something.

Experts, is there any real solution/workaround to this problem?

Thanks.
