    Have you tried placing the file? If you have Corel you could try importing it.

    Not sure it can be opened. We have had this issue from time to time and searched for an answer for years.

    The best solution is prevention. You should have at least 1 backup of every file on your computer and probably more such as a cloud solution. That way if something gets damaged you can just restore it from your backup.

    Work Recovery

    Step 1

    Launch Adobe Illustrator. Click “File” and select "Open” from the context menu.

    Step 2

    Choose the file you want to recover in the file-navigation dialog. Highlight the file but do not open it.

    Step 3

    Press “Ctrl-Alt-Shift” on a Windows PC, or press the Command-Option-Shift” keys simultaneously on a Mac.

    Step 4

    Click “Open” while holding down the keys. A blank window will open. Close this window.

    Step 5

    Navigate to the directory containing your file with the work you want to recover. Open it and look for a copy of the original filename preceded by an underscore (“_”) character. This is your recovered file ready for editing.

    or you can try to use recover Illustrator online
