Corrupt File
Last night I was working on a piece of art, nine layers, watching a show and drawing. Something I do quite often. I saved the file, restarting my computer. Next I noticed one of the add blockers (, for anyone who's interested) had run out of time and needed to be updated and restarted my computer again. When I attempted to work on the file again I get
Quote:This XCF file is corrupt! I have loaded as much of it as I can, but it is incomplete.


I spent over 30 hours on this art, and seeing as this is the second time I've drawn this piece (previous incarnation was lost when my desktop crashed) I would really, really like to be able to finish it. I need six of the nine layers.

This was the only file that was corrupt. Other files are fine. The layer that I think I was working on was saved... unfortunately that's only about 1/6 of the whole project. Even a version of the art from a few days ago would be good- but it all seems to be gone. It still registers as 9 megabytes, but will only open 2.9 of them.

Is there anything I can do?

On the off chance that someone can do something, the file is attached.

Is there a way to open a single layer? if so, could you indulge me and tell me how?
