    I have a 24 Meg Corel Draw 10 document that has become corrupt. I discovered that my drive C was full, and have found a number of 24 Meg .tmp files in my TEMP directory.
    I think the drive became totally full during my last save.
    Is there any way to recover my file, either from the CDR file or one of the temp files? I have no older copies of this file to fall back to.
    When I try to open the CDR file I get Error Reading xxx file.
    I have searched for a solution for hours but have found nothing. I have a deadline to meet in 2 days and would appreciate any advice.

    I would like to add a tip that has helped me with large files. When you save the file, in the "Save Drawing" window click on advanced and under "File Optimization" uncheckthe "Use Bitmap Compression" & "Use Graphic Object Compression" options. This will result in much larger file sizes, but quicker saves and less corruption.
    The best possibility is if you have an older backup, from a time when the file was smaller than 2Gb.
    CorelDRAW Repair Kit you could try -- but I haven't used it myself and I've no idea if it is safe or will do the job. I suspect it can at best recover only part of your work.

    To be safe, you may want to wait to see if other users have used program successfully, or install it for initial testing on a computer that has nothing important.
