    I'm using Corel Draw 11. I was setting up a book for a client and was on page 72 of 96. I was saving the file after every page that was finished. I had to step out for a bit and closed the file and shut down the computer. When I returned to finish the book I was unable to open the file.

    I could see the file in the preview section before clicking open but when I tried to open the file Corel would freeze up on me and say it was unable to open. I saved it to disk and tried on 2 different computers at work but the same thing happened.

    Anyone know why that would happen? That's about 5 hours of work lost...and I don't want that to happen again.

    Thanks

    Yeah, that can be a bummer! Had that happen a few times as well, but sure why. If you have not changed the defaults from your original CDR 11 install, then there should be an auto-backup of that file; look for "backup_of_'filename'.cdr". This has saved my bacon on more than one occasion! :) I have mine set to save the backup to the folder where the original is saved to. Tools > Options > Workspace >Save CDR will generally open the backup when it cannot the original; save it under a different name when you do get it open. Hope this works! :)
