Corrupted Mathcad File

It seems that I have a corrupted mathcad file. I get the following error message when I try to open it. I am using version 15. Is there a way to fix this, I've attached the file.

Re: Corrupted Mathcad File

I have seen this error a few times myself.

It usually happens when mathcad crashes during a save.

If this is what happened then the file will be 0 bytes long (no content) & not recoverable from the file.

However, if you look in the folder where you were trying to save there may be a file in the form "MFCxxnn.TMP" where xx are random letters & nn are random digits.

If there is try renaming it from .tmp to .xmcd .

My experience has been that I can usually recover all the data that I had saved.

Andy

Can you upload this file?

I tried attaching the file in the first post, and have tried again. Hopefully it works this time. Thanks.

No, it didn't.

You have to click "Use advanced editor" at the upper left first. Then you have at the end of your post the option to attach files.

Hello Maarten,

Hopefully this is what you had.

The highlighted equation is the one that I think had failed, but there are a ery large numer of invalid equations (all showing red) so you will need to check through everything carefully.
