    Cannot open file, "Insufficient Memory to Complete this Operation"

    So I have this .RIF file. I have been working on it and saving a couple of versions along the way (using "interactive save"), and all was working fine, I could save and open it neatly.

    Then all of the sudden, I try to open the lastest version of the file with Painter X, and after it loads, a message saying "Insufficient Memory to Complete this Operation" appears, and the program gives up on loading it.

    I tried opening it with a previous version of Painter but I get an error message instead, which makes the program crash.

    The weirdest thing is that only the two lastest versions of the file cannot be opened; all but the first one.

    How can I get this file back to work? I don't want to lose it.

    You must be new to Painter if you think you can restore a corrupted file, your best bet would be to open the last file that is not corrupted and in Scripts try to look for the date of the files to find a match and hit play, if all goes well Painter will reproduce all your brush strokes back until you hit Save.

    I'm not new to painter, I just didn't know the file was corrupted (never happened to me before).

    Damn... I don't know what I did to corrupt the files. I believe they are a loss then. Thank you anyway.

    That's the thing with Painter you don't have to do something wrong for it to crash or corrupt a file hence my witty remark, still the scripts are probably your best bet to restore the file.

    My response to this question posted in the Painter Factory;

    I and others have had an occasional problem saving .riff files compressed, so I no longer do so. It sounds like yours got corrupted some how. It used to be that disk space was a lot more at a premium than now. There are some problems saving as a Photoshop file as mentioned above, but also for me any shapes, text or other vector objects become rasterized.

    Another thought, use iterative save often. It saves a whole hell of a lot of aggravation, (and broken punched keyboards)
