So hours of work won't open back up in photoshop this is just great. The piece is just somehow not compatible with Photoshop anymore... And the due date is in less than a week now. Anyone know anything about files not opening or not being compatible with the program anymore?
Sometimes, after a crash, the file corrupts and is no longer usable. Its not common, but Almost every artist I know has had it happen to them at least once. Sadly as far as I know, their is nothing you can do. Just cuss about the program, take a short break and start over.
The only prevention advise I can give you is that you can start saving multiple files as you go. That way if one corrupts, you haven't lost more than a few hours of work. But I would only recommend this for bigger projects that take days to complete, or you;ll end up with a lot of random files taking up space.
File corruption is more common to 3D than 2D files, so saving often and multiple saves is like an OCD to 3D artist.
I'm still pissed about that capsule that I lost a couple months ago due to a windows explorer crash.
So Sorry to hear about your misfortune though
