corrupted .PDN

Recommended Posts

Okay, so I was working with a project that had about 20 layers, & paint.net crashed. It said there was an unspecified error, & it had to close. However, the menu bar was still functional as the message box displayed, & I had made a LOT of changes since I last saved to the project, so I tried to save changes to the .PDN i was working on. It saved to about 10%, then said there was an error saving. Now, it obviously corrupted the .PDN, as I can no longer open it. It just says: "there was an error reading the file from the media". What I'm asking is, can any of the data be retrieved from the corrupted .PDN? A layer or two? I was working on it all day, & it looked pretty good, so it would save me from a major headache if I can get any of the data back. Also, perhaps this crash log can help Rick fix an issue in a future update for Paint.net.

So here's a zip with the crash log & the .PDN:

If you're running windows 7 you could right click on the file and look for

. Hopefully you have Windows 7. If not, I think there's some software called Recuva well for file recovery.

Actually, I was using Recuva & I am running Windows 7. Unfortunately, after I found the file to be corrupted, I deleted it, & then I undeleted it with recuva, so no previous versions. What I'm asking is, can any data be retrieved from the .PDN I have now?

Look, no one knows the internal layout of a PDN file. So, I doubt that anyone will be able to get any valuable information out of it.
