Hi Jaipal,

Thanks for reaching out and letting us know what you are experiencing in your project.

I wish I had the magic wand to get this file for you, but as Matthew indicated, if it is corrupted, there's nothing we can do.

There may still be a working version of your project in your temp files. Here's how to check:

1) Open this folder in Windows Explorer: %appdata%\Articulate\Storyline

2) Scan the contents of this folder for a file that starts with the name of your project. If you find one, copy it to your desktop. If you find more than one, copy the latest version to your desktop.

3) Change the file extension of the copy on your desktop from *.tmp to *.story.

4) Double-click the file to open it in Storyline.

File corruption is unpredictable, and there's no straightforward way to determine what causes it. Common causes are environmental (disk errors, power outages, improper shutdowns), viruses, failed Windows updates, and even file size (i.e., very large files have a higher risk of corrupting). Consider using the preventative measures described in this article to protect your project files.

Hi Jaipal,

In our continued efforts to help prevent and recover from file corruption, we've added a new recovery feature to Storyline 360, build 3.29.19305.0. If a project becomes corrupt, Storyline lets you know if there's a working version in your temp files and makes it easy for you to recover. Details here.

Let us know how this feature is working for you and if you have any other questions on the latest update! You can reach out in E-Learning Heroes or connect with our Support Team

I wanted to let you know the feature I mentioned earlier is now available in Storyline 3, build 3. 3.7.20003.0. You can download the latest update from this page, and this articlewill provide more details on how this enhancement will work. 

I hope that helps, and please let us know if you need anything else!
