CorelDraw Damaged or Corrupt .CDR file

CorelDraw Damaged or Corrupt .CDR file

CorelDraw Damaged or Corrupt .CDR file

I have a 24 Meg Corel Draw 10 document that has become corrupt.  I discovered that my drive C was full, and have found a number of 24 Meg .tmp files in my TEMP directory.  
I think the drive became totally full during my last save.  

Is there any way to recover my file, either from the CDR file or one of the temp files? I have no older copies of this file to fall back to.

When I try to open the CDR file I get Error Reading xxx file.

I have searched for a solution for hours but have found nothing.  I have a deadline to meet in 2 days and would appreciate any advice.

RE: CorelDraw Damaged or Corrupt .CDR file

Maybe you could try to load the backup file. CorelDraw will usually save a backup file of the current file you are working on unless you have disabled that function. I have had files go currupt on my and I was able to retrieve them from the auto backup file.

RE: CorelDraw Damaged or Corrupt .CDR file

If the back-up files don't load, or you can't find them, try changing the extention on your .TMP file to .CDR and try that.
