Hi there

Has anyone ever successfully recovered a corrupt document using MXD Doctor? Personally I have not, although I've probably only had to try and use it on about 6 document over the last two years or so.

Mostly, if not always, when I do it says that there is no corruption. In my latest one I can't open the document without ArcMap 10.1.01 crashing during opening. If the document isn't corrupted when why is it causing ArcMap to crash? As an aside, I regularly get ArcMap 10.1.01 crashing and I am fairly certain it crashed whilst saving the MXD, which I think is the cause of ArcMap not being able to load. But MXD Doctor does say the document is not corrupted.

Kind regards
