  • Question

  • We update data almost every day, moreover we change it and take it from other places. About ten people used the project. Our general software we used Microsoft Project 2010. It was very handy and fastly. Two days ago some of the data of our employee was disappeared from our general .mpp file. We applied microsoft project recovery tool from Microsoft, it could bring back only 50% of data. Other data we don't know how to get again.

  • SandaCara,

    First of all is Project 2010 fully updated? It should be version 14.0.7179.5000. If not, run Windows Update.

    You mention that several users edit the file. Is the file on a remote server? If so, the chance of a network glitch can corrupt a file. You mentioned using the Microsoft recovery tool, exactly which one was that? Was it the repair utility in the Control Panel or something else?

    You might also try the recovery method described in this Wiki article. It's a long shot but worth a try.

    Another option is third party Project recovery tools. Search the web, you may get lucky.

    Unfortunately if the file is corrupt and data lost, your chance of getting it back is slim. Hopefully you backed up the file periodically and can take the last backup as a starting point.
