    I recently had a harddrive fail. I was able to recover most of the data, but when psd files are opened, PhotoShop displays an error. It says the files are not recognized as PhotoShop format. I compared, using a Hex Editor, the contains of a valid psd file and one I recovered. The difference appears to be added information above the file header. Does anyone know of a tool or utility or anyway to fix the file corruption? I tried removing the lines above the headers but that did not work. I have talk with the company that wrote the recovery software but they offered no real help. Does anyone have a solution?

    Rule 1 of PhotoShop:
    Expect Photoshop to Crash

    Rule 2:
    Expect it to crash before you back-up.

    Living with the knowledge of these rules will help you in your journey, Grasshopper.
