if you have the swf, you can decompile it back into an fla.  I would recommend:

http://www.sothink.com/product/flashdecompiler/

download their trial version and give it a go.

I don't want you to expose your "secrets" here, but if the file is created on a pirat copied version of Flash, and you'r now trying to open the file on another computer (doesn't matter if this is a legal copy or not), it may not work.

The reason is that Macromedia spread out (on warez sites) "full" versions of Flash, where the files only could be used on THAT EXACT version of Flash, thus removing the possibility for opening the fla on other computers ;)

Clever, actually

yep, tried it too, vwon't open.
The file is probably corrupted.

This is why iI keep regular backups of my projects.
This is a 2 mb file, no problem to back it up.

Sorry man....
