Forum Thread: How do I fix a corrupted mpp file?

I was analyzing the data and when I had almost finished the report on the resources used in MS Project 2016. The system crashed due to a power outage and I can not open the file with my work and send it to the boss. The program tells me about the error - Project can not recognize this file format. Do you want to open this file only as text? Trying to open this file from another computer was unsuccessful. I do not have any good idea how to cope with this trouble.

How to repair mpp file? To restore the Project Server database, you can use the restore feature of Microsoft SQL Server. To do this, follow these steps:

Click Start, click AllPrograms, click Microsoft SQL Server, and then click SQL Server Management Studio.

In the Connect to Server dialog, the Server Type should be "Database Engine". Check the Server name and Authentication and make changes if needed, then click the Connect button.

Expand SQL Server if needed and then expand Databases.
Right-click the database, point to All Tasks, and then click Restore then click Database.
From the list of backups, click the backup to restore, and then click OK to start the restore.
Click OK to confirm that the restore completed successfully.
