Recovery Toolbox for Project is a project management tool created by Microsoft and included in the MS Office suite. This tool can repair corrupted Microsoft Project (MPP) files and recover their content, or recover these files altogether when they were lost, deleted or damaged because of various reasons.

Link to download its demo version:


Do the following:

1. Launch Microsoft Project Professional and log into Project Server
2. Open the project in question
3. Click File - Save As - Save As File
4. Save the project as an .mpp file
5. Log into PWA with administrator permissions
6. Click Admin - Clean Up Project Server Database
7. Delete the project and its associated SharePoint subweb

On the new Project Server instance, do the following:

1. Launch Microsoft Project Professional and log into Project Server
2. Click Tools - Enterprise Options - Import Project to Enterprise
3. Import the project
4. Click Collaborate - Publish - All Information
5. Click Collaborate - Publish - Republish Assignments
6. Select the "Overwrite actual work entered by resources" option
7. Click OK

Hope this helps.
