Need help recovering a file

Postby Chieftanaxe » Wed Jul 29, 2015 1:42 am

I was working on a project today and was quite a ways into it, when my computer began to freeze and slow down (not because of famitracker, my computer just sucks). Anyway, I needed to restart the computer and I hit save on my project before I restarted. Now when I try to open the .ftm, I'm told "File is not a valid famitracker module". Is there any way to recover the file? I really don't want to start all over again.

The first 4 KB of the FTM has been completely corrupted; here is what I could retrieve from the FTM. I added the frames myself, since the frame data cannot be found from the FTM. All the VRC6 sequences remain intact.

Hey, I've experienced a similar file corruption. How did you go about retrieving the file?

EDIT: never mind, I found a backup.
