 Hi there,

I was doing a large project (around 500MB) and it suddenly deleted and vanished. I looked in the NVivo recovery file and found an NVB File with the appropriate time stamp which is the project I was working on. However, when converting the file in NVivo to open it, it says the conversion is not possible. I am also unable to attach this file to this email as the max size is 0.49 MB and the file is 0.52 MB. 

How do I recover the project if it is even possible? Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi Robin,

It is unusual that project file has suddenly disappeared. Was it accidentally deleted? If not, were you accessing it from a network drive or an online storage such as Dropbox?

I have attached a corrupt dummy project to help you recover the project from the nvb file. Download and save this file to your computer and then attempt to open it in NVivo. You will be presented with an option to recover from a project recovery file. Select your nvb file to recover the project.

Kind Regards,
