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.

has anyone heard of Quark plugins that can help to recover corrupted files?

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.
