Adobe illustrator file corruption.

Hi, I’ve gotta problem with my Adobe Illustrator. Yesterday I was working in it. But today it doesn’t want to open this file. It says that the file is corrupted. What’s the matter? I did nothing wrong. I’ve saved it as usual and then switched off my PC. It’s bad that I’ve got no backup. I had no idea that it could happen. Help me please to recover this file. I don’t want to work all day again. The size of file is 42 428 kb.

First check your illustrator. Could it open other files or not? Try to create new file and save it, then open again.
Try to open your corrupted file on another PC. Then if it doesn’t work, it means that your file is corrupted. So you should try to restore it by Recovery Toolbox for Illustrator . You can download it here
