Recovered file not working

I recently lost some files from my pc including sketchup file. I recovered it using a recovery software. but unfortunately it’s not working. I attached the file also here. If it is possible, please someone help me.
thanks in advance.

Doesn’t look like there’s anything to recover from that file. It’s about two-thirds zeroes. Do you have the .skb and can you share it?

Are you using SU2021 as indicated in your forum profile?

I unable to upload the .skb here.
Yes I am using SU2021.

Why? Upload it to DropBox or We Transfer and share the link.

You should update to SU2023.

yes. I will try to update it as soon as possible.

The .skb file is similar. Nearly two-thirds zeroes. Unfortunately this isn’t uncommon with files that have been “recovered” with recovery software.

I would suggest upgrading soon. You can then use your Trimble Connect storage to save backups of your project files in case the drive in your computer has problems.

oh. ok. I already downloaded the SU2023. But unfortunately I did not install it.
Thank you for your effort.

Maybe it’s time now. I presume your subscription is current.

Make sure to read the release notes for both SketchUp 2022 and 2023 to catch up on the changes and new features.
