Broken or Corrupt File

Been modelling a house, I’ve just used Geolocate and was messing with the shadow feature when Sketchup seemed to crash, the file was already saved but the computer crashed. I’d not really done much after the initial save so wasn’t too bothered about losing any work.

Issue is that now the saved file won’t open at all, it opens to a blank screen and freezes, the autosaved file does exactly the same, I’ve tried renaming the file but it does nothing.

Has anyone got any pointers as to how I can retrieve my file. Its very annoying as it kind of defeats the object of saving a file.


Can you share the .skp file so we can take a look and perhaps help you out?
