    Repairing corrupt Illustrator file?

    I had been working on logo samples for my portfolio in Illustrator 10 on a PC and created a sketch file with four layers, and about ten font tests(each saying sandwich shop) on the first layer.  When I closed the file last night a warning came up about not embedding two fonts, which are both freeware, so no surprise.  Upon opening it this morning though, the file gave this warning: Can't open illustration. The illustration does not have the correct number of operands for an operator.I have opened the file using Notepad to remove the coding for the offending font, but it made things worse.

    I wish I could help you with this.
    I have something to use this article for recovery: … ator_file/
    Here's some 20/20 hindsight advice...and I speak from experience... save, save, save... and backup your files whenever you are working on something where there's alot of time involved to recreate.  Like I said I learned the hard way... I lost 4 hrs worth of recreating a very complex logo.
    I'll ask around some people I know to see if they know of something.  I'll let you know if I come up with something.
