Can't open PSD... “unexpected end of file” error


I have a PSD file that was sent to me using FTP. Unfortunately, the last bit appears to be corrupt or missing as when opening it in PS CS2 it gives the error “unexpected end of file”. I think the file is about 98% complete.

The problem is the guy deleted the file after uploading it…

Is there any way to recover it, even if the last part of the image is damaged but get most of it?

(Free tools if possible)

Many Thanks,

Ask "the guy" to check his recycle bin OR restore from backup.

:) too late for that, if that was the case it wouldn't be a problem.

unlike a ZIP file with many files.. the PSD is a single file, with image information, property & layer settings, etc...  You need 100% of the file.

Looks like someone has to recreate this.
