Corrupted file
#1
Sad 
Whilst saving a file I worked on the programme crashed and now won't re-open the file saying it is corrupt? Does anyone know how to rescue this situation - 20 hours work on file involved. Can attach file if necessary. Won't open in any other programme either.

Very rarely is a corrupt Gimp .xcf recoverable, especially from Gimp 2.8 and WindowsXP.

Take precautions and save your work frequently with incremental names. Pays off in the long run.

When I restarted Gimp 2.10 after a crash this morning, it offered to recover the files that were open...
