I'm working on my model in modelbuilder when suddenly ArcGIS freezes and crashes.  When I open it back up, I get this error message when I try to open my model:

Failed to Open Model Error Message

I've tried copying the model, moving it to another toolbox, and using a different computer.

How can I recover my work?

I know of no tools that can recover corrupt tbx files (along the lines of MXD Doctor).

Try naming the toolbox and model something other than "New Toolbox" and "Model", and put it on C temp, not on a network share. I have a hunch here.....

I  still get an error after copying to my Default toolbox on my C drive.  I can open other models on both my network and local drives.
