I need help recovering a corrupt SketchUp file


I went to open one of my sketchup files recently to find out that it said “This does not to be a SketchUp model”. Be nice to get my model back.

AutoSave_SAVE.skp (319.6 KB)


crashed with me too!


It certainly doesn’t appear to be a SketchUp file at all !
It doesn’t even contain the usual ‘header’ info for that, or SUp version, and its ‘encoding’ is also not like a usual SKP…
A corrupt file usually includes that, but then some data deeper inside is foobar !

Sorry :anguished:


I looked at the end of the file too, it doesn’t end in the way that other autosave files do.
