Not able to open Archicad 27 edu file


Have been trying to open a file i recently worked and saved. It is in Archicad 27 edu. Tried open and repair, merge. It is also not possible to share the file through any medium such as google drive, we transfer, whatsapp upload. This is something really weird. If someone can help.

Maybe the file has become corrupt somehow?

What is the size of the file?

If 0KB, it is definitely corrupt.


Do you have a .BPN (backup) file you can open?

This will be the same file, but one save older.
