Invalid Page Fault in my precious ID file! HELP! - Adobe Indesign Windows

Using Indesign 2.0 (running WIN 98)I put together about 350 pages of text and graphics, and foolishly never backed it up. I work through a network, and this file was stored on the server. One night as I finished work late, I left both computers on, shut off their monitors, and left. Next morning I came to work and found the file as I left it.

    Default Invalid Page Fault in my precious ID file! HELP!

    Using Indesign 2.0 (running WIN 98)I put together about 350 pages of text and graphics, and foolishly never backed it up. I work through a network, and this file was stored on the server. One night as I finished work late, I left both computers on, shut off their monitors, and left.
    Next morning I came to work and found the file as I left it. But when I began to place graphics or move objects (any work of any sort) in the file, I received a message saying that there was an error on the page. Indesign had no desire at the time to shut me down, so I saved the file (so stupidly) and shut it down myself, thinking restarting my computer and the server would be the thing to do to save the file. There was a thunderstorm that night, but both computers were the same as when I left them the night before, and apparently weren't bothered by lightning or anything else. When both computers were restarted, Indesign opened properly and every other ID doent works properly, but my precious 350 page file doesn't open and I get the following message every time I try opening it:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~

    Can anyone help me? I NEED to recover at least the text of this file! I've tried everything I could imagine, and anything that the knowledgbase for ID recommended for me to do. There are temp files and an "Indesign Lock File" and a "Indesign Doent" file with ~~ before it.
    If the file is unrecoverable, at least can I open it in another Adobe application such as Pagemaker/etc., and hopefully just get the text? I tried opening it in Microsoft Word to see if I could read the text only, but there were 550 pages of computer language, and no text from the file.
    ANY suggestions are appreciated! Let all who read this message be reminded NEVER to neglect backing up your work, ESPECIALLY if you work on a network.
    Thanks, Rachel

    I have no idea if this will work, but have you tried renaming the file to a different name and trying to open that?
    Before you open ID and try to open it, empty all Temp files from the computer first.

    Rachel,

    I don't think I can help but maybe version 2.01 could open the file? (it's a good idea to update anyway)

    Another thing I would try is to reinstall Indesign because maybe that plugin got corrupted....

    Or delete the preferences...

    Good luck.

    Greetings from Belgium

    MS Word has a "Recover Text from Any File" option under File Open. You might try that.

    Thanks, everyone.
    Karen, I tried renaming, deleting all Temp files, and reopening.
    Ronald, I have Indesign 2.02, so I guess there aren't any upgrades except to CS. I reinstalled InDesign on both the server and my computer, but the same message appears after doing all these things, and I can't open the file.
    Paul, I'll try opening in Word with the "Recover Text From Any File" option like you said. It sounds like a great idea. I can't find such an option in Word 98, but I"ll try with Word 2000 or some more recent version. I suppose that is the one you referred to anyway.
    I welcome all other ideas! Thanks for your help.
    Rachel.

    Try disabling all your fonts and then opening the doent. It's possible that the doent calls for a font that has become corrupted.
