Ill-advisedly let my computer out of my sight for ten minutes. Enter stage left my two children. Result: ten minutes later my computer was having a nervous breakdown. They sometimes have that effect on me, but not usually on my PC. Anyway, I had a file open in editor, but SDL refused to respond, as did Outlook and Word, for that matter. Forced to reboot. After rebooting, when I tried to open the project I was working on, it would not open, and I received the following error message:
Failed to load project from : Elemento di primo livello mancante (first level element missing?)

Anyone know what I can do to save and get back my file?

I, and of course my children, would be very grateful for any help
