    Corrupted File

    I have a corrupted central file. I have an element ID (31071) that seems to be corrupted. I tried to delete this element by selecting it but it make Revit crash. All of my central file have up to 20 Backups. I tried all of theses backups. When I open the backup I have the same error (element 31071). If it a backup why would I have the same element ID error...? This is downright scarry & not serious for Autodesk...:banghead:

    Anybody has some suggestion so that I can recover my model...

    Have you tried opening it with the Audit button checked?

      Can also detach from central & Audit....purge....save as a different filename...(that way your existing backups are retained)

      If you still have issues.....are there any linked files? Detach them...and audit...

        When I try that, the message box says: "Data in file XXX.RVT is corrupt and needs to be manually recovered. Please contact Autodesk Support"

          Well, then. it may be time to "... contact Autodesk Support."

          Honestly, I've only have a couple of models that have corrupted. Autodesk has helped, but sometimes it's a difficult puzzle for them, too and it's not as speedy as you'd like it to be. I bet you have a looming deadline, too? Technology always wants to mess with you when you have a deadline.

              Well...are you doing things in your office that can create corrupted files? Working with VPN? Working with a wireless network? People not syncing to the central regularly? Most of the time a file becomes corrupted because of the users, not the software.

                Yeah... I'm now suspecting my computer... This morning I had a Windows startup repair... Then my AutoCAD 2015 seems to be corrupted (install last Friday)... & then, Revit corrupted file...

                    If you have links on separate worksets, open the central file only to see if it is your central or a linked file causing the issue. This happened to us, the entire model with links was locked up because of a corrupt electrical family. If you have your open workset dialogue box set to 'specify', you can open one link and a time to isolate the culprit.
