Recovering corrupted file

If your file is corrupted because of Visio crash there are two ways to recover it:

Solution 1:

  1. Change corrupted visio file extension to .zip i.e. from myFile.vsdx to myFile.vsdx.zip 
  2. Create a new folder
  3.  Open the zip file and copy the contents into a new folder. 
  4. Create a new zip file with the contents of the folder (all extracted files and folders) 
  5. Rename the zip to a vsdx file. i.e. rename NewFolder.zip to myFile.vsdx 
  6. Try to open the new file with Visio. 
  7. If this didn’t fix the corruption (it does work for some errors), then try the solution 2.

Solution 2:

  1. You will need the WinRAR application (free/trial version is ok) 
  2. Change corrupted visio file extension to .zip i.e. from myFile.vsdx to myFile.vsdx.zip 
  3. Click right mouse button on the zip file Click on “Repair archive”, or press Alt+R.  
  4. Click on Browse button and select a folder where you want to keep the repaired archive.  
  5. There will be two options (“Treat the corrupt archive as RAR” and ”Treat the corrupt archive as ZIP”).  
  6. Select as **ZIP ** 
  7. Click on **OK **button. 
  8. Once done rename the new zip file by removing .zip i.e. rename myFile.vsdx.zip to myFile.vsdx
