Unable to recover file

I work with FM pro 13, on a Mac (10.11.6)


Yesterday I was working on a database file size 80 MB (each record has a container for PDFs). This morning I come back to work on the file and I get the jolly message "this file is corrupted of was not created by FM". Great. I look around forums and it seems that there is a recovery procedure. Tried that. When I try to select the file from the recovery, I get exactly the same message. There must be a way to recover the file??? Is there a way to open it with any other application and then just grab the field content manually. I lost several hours, perhaps days, of work. Never happened with the worst Microsoft applications. Thanks for any help.
