How to open a CDR file

I am having a problem trying to open a CDR file that I think crashed. This is the second time it has happened with different files. The file still shows up in my external drive but has an icon next to it which it did not have before. When I click on it, it opens up in corel but as a blank page. Can I some recover it? Thanks… I would be appreciated!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

But do you have an auto-backup configured? It is located at Tools->options -> (workspace) -> Save. You can set the elapsed time between backups (eg 10 minutes) as well as the destination folder. If you actually have it set you could look in the destination folder and see if there is a backup there. If not, consider setting it up for future use. You can also set it to make a backup upon saving the file. There is something corrupted with the file as it has been saved that Corel won’t open it. Maybe there is a chance that another software that can import CorelDraw files might overlook the glitch and try to import the rest. Depends on what part of the file is corrupted. See it here:

Restore Toolbox

 If instrument above didn’t help, you would need to identify what may have caused the file corruption. Possible causes could include: • Document was corrupted / not saved due to the program crashing or hanging • Saving large files to a network drive.
