In order to recover any data you may have lost from your corrupted file, you can try the following methods:
and press Enter. A list of datasets may appear if the file is not too corrupted. The list will look similar to this example:
Which lists two different worksheets : MyData and Data2. To recover these datasets, use the Edit command:
and press Enter. This will bring up the "MyData" worksheet including all three associated datasets. You would use the edit command for each worksheet. Unfortunately graph windows cannot be recovered.
After "editing" each worksheet copy/paste the data from the first instance of Origin (the corrupted file) to a second instance of Origin (a non-corrupted file). Alternatively, you can export the worksheet data in the corrupted file (select File: Export ASCII from the main menu) and then import the ASCII data into a new Origin project file.
For more information, see Opening, Closing and Backing up the Origin Project File.
