As sometimes happens, Mathematica went into some loop,
waited and waited, and after 5 cups of coffee, could not
wait more, so I shutdown the process.
Now my notebook will not open, it says it is corrupted.
I tried to fix it using a text editor, but could not.
Here is the original corrupted file, in this folder:
I was wondering if there is a tool which will help in
this? May be some automated tool which can fix a corrupted
I do make sure I save my notebook all the time, but it looks
like Mathematica does not make a backup copy of the notebook,
so I am stuck. This means I will have lost about 5 hrs of
work if I can't recover this.
Why does Mathematica not automatically make a side backup
copy of the notebook all the time? Like say MS Word does?
thanks for any ideas and help.
