Desperate for Help.


Recommended Posts

I don't know what happened but I'm getting error messages that both of the attached files are corrupted. Just normally saving. I've attached error message that comes up with both.

If these can't be recovered I've lost hours of work (most recent backup was 3 hours ago. Is there any way to Recover these files?

Any help would be appreciated.

I only had time to look at the first file. When trying to open it, I got a missing resources warning. I ignored that because I don't have access to them but after that the file opened OK for me. I saved it as ARBGalaProgram, less missing resorces.afpub

Maybe that will help you?

I'll try renaming and see what that does. Thanks.

Unfortunately, a name change didn't work. Publisher is still seeing it as a corrupt file and closes it.

I.m not sure what you mwan by name change. The file I uploaded is more than just a name change. It was resaved without the missing resources that (I assume) were referenced in your original. So can you open the file I uploaded or not?

If a linked resource is causing the issue it might help to rename your related resource folder(s) temporarily to be able to open the document at least. Then it possibly works to delete the resources from the layout that were recently added in the 3 hours before the issue.

The problem is there are multiple folders that could be the culprit (About 20 folders). I like the idea but I would have to figure out exactly what folders the sourced materials came from.

Sorry. So crazed with scrambling I missed the file to download. It actually worked! Thanks so much. It seems the original had to be removed from the pathway environment it was created in and resaved as you did in order for it to not have the same error when I opened it on my computer.

Using the file I uploaded, you should be able to go to the Resource Manager & at least see where the paths to the resource files should be. Many of them seem to be in subfolders of a Documents folder named FREELANCE. This may help you relink many of them.

How about the main parent folder or disk name? You just need to prevent the resource path saved within your .afpub from working and thus prevent APub from accessing the resources.

Since he now has the file I uploaded, he doesn't need to rename anything, but of course this is a good technique to remember if something like that happens in the future.
