Critically Corrupted Musescore 4 File

• Jan 7, 2023 - 05:10

EDIT: Resolved
I am in a very unfortunate situation, in that I have 5 minutes of music written and now no way to open it due to the unfortunately common "Open Error" message I've been getting that says "this file is critically corrupted and cannot be processed." At this point, in there anything I could do to solve this? I have attached the file.

Thanks in advance for any help

I was able to recover the main score by extracting the MSCX file from the MSCZ. None of the original part scores would open, so you'll have to remake those and potentially redo any non-default audio settings for this score. You'll still get a warning about corruptions, but you can choose "Ignore" and fix the measures that aren't right.
