Problem: This does not appear to be a SketchUp model!

Hello, I can’t open my July 2022 file. A window appears with written:“This does not appear to be a SketchUp model!”
what should I do
Thank for your help

What’s the file size?

a file .skp create in july

Post the file here, or if it is too large, upload it to a cloud service and post a link here. @colin could take a look at it, he has some superpowers.

Thank you all for your help. I fixed the problem

How? Posting your findings might help others.

I’m ashamed but the folder was empty :frowning: (

Hi. i have the same problem, i reseted my pc and lost some files. i recovered them but this legend appears when i try to open the file.
Is there a solution?

Thank you!

There might be. Share a file so @colin can look at it when he gets a chance. Keep in mind he’s at 3D Basecamp this week and will probably have limited time available on the forum so have some patience.

Thank you

There are various ways I can use to tell whether something is a SketchUp file or not, or whether it might be recovered. The file you gave is definitely not a SketchUp file.

Unless there are no writes to the disc after the loss, the assumptions that recovery tools rely on often become incorrect and the “recovered” file is garbage.
