2.93 won't open Blend files (and "Missing DNA Blocks")

I don’t know what’s going on, but I noticed when trying to open a rig I wanted to play around with, this happened:


It says the file’s not supported despite being a .Blend file, anyone know what’s going on with this?

I also stumbled on this error:


What’s a “missing DNA block” and how do I fix this to get it working again?

Hi Philmister,

I believe this happens when Blender save operation is interrupted, which means some data is missing. You could try to append the data instead (hopefully the part you need wasn’t affected). Other option is to check the backups if present. That is check the .blend1, .blend2, etc…

Cheers and stay safe.
