Luc is unfortunately right.

The file in the archive consists of 4808988 bytes which are all zero (this makes for a very good compression and is responsible for the very small archive size which Luc had noticed) . So there is no information in this file which could be recovered and your only hope is that you have a backup lying around.

We have heard here quite a few times about this effect with Prime files getting damaged. Seems the program is not really reliable which means one must make more backups than with other software to be on a safer side.

I don't like .rar files, but in this case I don't expect it to be a problem, the .rar file is so small (389 bytes) that it will not hold a valid Prime sheet file.

Conclusion: you data is probably lost. I hope you have a backup.

 

Success!

As written above - no need to upload the file. There is nothing which could be recovered from it.
