I was recently working on Windows XP until my hard drive died. I had all of my data retrieved and have now set up on a Windows 2000 system for the time being. The problem I'm having now is I cannot open up any of the retrieved files. For example, when I attempt to open an InDesign file I get this very vague error message:
"Cannot open the file "bmvol7.indd". Adobe InDesign may not support the file format, a plug-in that supports the file format may be missing, or the file may be open in another application."
Word says, I need to download a translator.
Photoshop and Illustrator just crash.
I understand that all of my rescued files may be damaged, but I was hoping there might be another answer. While the software specific icons aren't tshowing up the descriptions acknowledge what types of files they are and show the appropriate file sizes....so the information must still be there.
Any insight will be appreciated.
