Haven't used Artpro, but have you tried making a b/up of the recovered file, then renaming one copy by removing the ".ai" from the end?

Are you sure the recovered file is actually the file you are looking for and not a temp file or some other support file?

I don't really know the software that created the file you are looking for. I suggested it as a possibility. However, if the file is the same size as what you are looking for, then it probably is the file you are looking for.

Have you tried to open in from within the app you used to create it as opposed to just double clicking it?
