See a reply to a previous question of this sort "my Mathematica file was 
corrupted - help!". If you get this message, it is best to file nothing 
back in the corrupted notebook - or you may lose further information - 
and then salvage the contents as suggested. The amount of salvageable 
information will, of course, depend on the nature of the corruption!

Whatever you do, make no further changes to the original corrupt file - 
work with copies.

Do you know what caused the original corruption?
