Recovering corrupted .OTM file

My OTM file appears corrupted.  When ever I try to access a macro or open the visual basic editor I get "File Not Found".  This goes away if I rename the OTM file (in which case I get a blank project file) or if I replace the OTM with the last backed up copy I have.

The problem is I have several days of work since the last back up of the OTM file.  Is there any possible way to recover the OTM file contents.  It appears to approx the correct length.

Hi rmvanduyn,

unfortunately there are no recovery tools, and the format is some form of binary so you can't open it in notepad or something else then outlook.

what happens
1. if you put macro security to high in outlook
2. close outlook
3. open outlook
4. try to open the vb editor again?

hope this helps a bit
