Windows Live Movie Maker corrupted my .wlmp file and I can't open it. How can I recover it without loosing anything?
Posted: 03 Nov 2017 06:36 PM
I currently run Windows Live Movie Maker (the latest version) and I was making a video and it randomly stopped working. I thought nothing of this because it had happened before and it usually just works again when I reopen it but when I reopened it, it said "would you like to recover the file?". I clicked no because every time before this, the regular file opens fine. But when I went to open the files, it was corrupted and I can't open it what so ever. I tried to repair the windows movie maker with wlarp but it did nothing. I am currently extremely sad because I spent hours working on that. I did not make backups because this had never happened before but I am wondering if there is any way I can recover this corrupted file.
I also read these articles and the dedicated forum is down:

Also these articles didn't help me at all:

(sorry for late reply)

I recommend these:

1. Check your temp folder. To do this, click start, and then run, or hold down WINDOWS + R keys. Type in %TEMP% and press enter/hit OK. Sometimes files you think have been deleted end up there.
2. Check Movie Maker's folder in your Program Files folder and check through it all as your file could've ended up there too.

I hope this helped, if you still check on this forum.
