I had a modle that was work in progress, it had been deleted and ive used a recovery program to get it back. The file looks ok, it has a file size, the blender icon and the origional name. However when I try to open it, I get the error:
Invalid file type or error
Invalid read error.
The only thing I can see that looks odd is the file size being 149 KB
however i dont know what typeical blend files are, this was a modle of a mouse, with a fair amount of polys due to the subsurfing.
Any sugestions on what I should do, besides backup my files before I try a foolish thing like running a new cleanup program called CleanUp 4.0 from stevengould.org that ends up deleteing important stuff that I was warned to backup.
