    N/A

    Win7

    Additional Information

    I had run out of disk space on C: however the file was saved on D: which had plenty of free space. Drive C: now has 350 MB available, but the capx will not open.

  • your "Shark Bait.caproj" and "Shark Bait.uistate.xml" are NULL into your capx, 0 kbytes. Same for Layout.

    your capx is very corrupted

  • The only thing that looks recoverable is the assets. Hopefully, you have used the backup options and have a .backup file that can be renamed.

  • Closing - I'm afraid we cannot do anything about projects that are already corrupt. We need the steps that caused the project to become corrupt in the first place to be able to do anything about it.

  • Yes, thankfully I had backups.

    The steps to cause this were to make C:\ have 0 bytes available, but have the project file hosted on D:\, which had lots of free space.

    Obviously, my bad for letting C: fill up, but that shouldn't have created a corrupted .capx since the .capx was on D:\ which had plenty of space.

  • You should move your mydocument folder then to D:\ permantely and let C:\ be for windows/software etc

    In linux and windows you can make Symbolic Links too, in case you accidently fill up a drive, and need to temporarily move a folder to another drive, without letting the application know you did anything fishy.

    In linux there are a few ways to do it depending on your file manager. In Debian based distros there is a minimalistic (as in text only) window manager. Just do a :

    sudo apt-get install worker

    Windows has a CLI command or you can just use this handy gadget:

    code.google.com/p/symlinker

    I use it after moving my steam, Desura, and Origin games on and off my tiny SSD.

    If you want the CLI commands and summary of Junctions ,symlinks, and hardlinking, just google : +Symlink +Your Operating system.

  • Thanks for the tips, guys, but I already had the project sitting on a drive with plenty of space.

    The problem was the Construct 2 itself ran out of space for (I assume) temp files somewhere... AppData? ... and this caused it to corrupt my .capx upon writing it out.
