      Pretty upset at the moment.  Hope someone can talk me off the ledge.

       

      Had a database stored on Box.com and open on my computer.  Biz partner change the name of the folder it was on while it was open.

       

      I came back to my computer and all the data was gone.  I closed FMP12 and tried to reopen the file and it gave me that error message.

       

      "filemaker The translator for this file format could not be found or could not be initialized."

       

      Tried to RECOVER it and said that it couldn't.  it said:

      "“DATABASE.fmp12” was not created by FileMaker or is severely damaged and cannot be opened."

       

      is there anything that can be done?
