Hi, I have a corrupted .afdesign file which was stored on Google file stream.  I get the following message:


Failed to load document:
The document appears to be corrupted\n\nThe document must now be closed.

I've tried copying the file to a non cloud location but still no joy.

Hi bobwal,

Unfortunately Google File Stream does seem to have a history of corrupting Documents (see this interesting blog post here), which sounds like what may have happened here. You may be able to use the Web Interface and use the file history (I believe they call it Activity) to get a working copy of the file prior to the corruption.
