I have a problem with opening up a .psd file. It says "Could not complete your request because the file is empty". I was working on an art project and saved the file. Well, I restarted my Mac and went to open it and that came up. I wasn't having problems before but now I don't know what to do.

Answer by Sean Hill

That file you were trying to open is actually corrupted. Photoshop displays that message when it encounters a file that's empty/corrupted. If you don't have a backup, then the project needs to be re-created. Additionally, you can try a recovery operation with the help of the Wondershare Recovery for Mac.

You can download a trial of the software using the following link:
