Default urgent assist with illustator image

I was drawing my image in Adobe Illustrator during several weeks. Today something happened with computer during editing .ai file and it was switched off. Now I have only a half of work I made 2 weeks.

Which is why you should always have a real time backup set up. My guess is you will have to redo the lost weeks worth of work.

Sad but probably true. I lost a HD (my main HD) this week so I know what you're going through.

This method considers acquiring Acrobat (not just the Reader) or you may solve the issue by recovery damaged adobe illustrator files

Works on (and was tested in) Illustrator version 10 and all CS versions.
>Open the corrupt file in Acrobat.
>Take the arrow tool.
>Click on any element or text in the document.
>Just move the object by hitting one of the directional arrows on your keyboard.
>File, Save.
>Open the file in Illustrator.
>It will say 'this file has been modified outside of Illustrator' or something to that effect. it will ask if you want to keep changes.
>Say 'Yes' (or OK)
Your file will open virtually intact!
This has worked when nothing else has... believe me it is painful to have to recreate a corrupt file....
