[Jalview-discuss] Error loading file message

Hello Adeba,

Thanks for passing me the Jalview project (.jvp) files you are having trouble with.

These do not appear to be valid project files - they are too small, and not in zip file format.

Inspecting the binary content (with Unix command "xxd -b <file>") and comparing with a valid project file suggests that they have been truncated.

Have they perhaps been incompletely transferred from (or to?) some backup location?

Are you able to recopy these files, or do you have any other copies of them?

Thanks and regards,

Dear Jalview administrator,

I have two files that I was able to open three months ago but can not longer open. I am using the same jalview version as I did when I created the documents. When I try to open them, I get the message "error loading file" and cannot open it. Is there a way to open these files?
