Attempted to access .rvt past its end

I have a .rvt file that is no longer working. It belongs to a student who has been working on this project for a while. It is for a grade and we are at a loss of what to do. The backup file works, but there is a lot of work missing between the backup and the file I have. I have the file as well as the journal if anyone can help.

 

Thanks!

"Past its end" errors typically indicate the file will not be able to be recovered.  The most recent backup that is working is probably your best bet.  Was the student saving to a flash drive by chance?  I have seen this kind of thing happen before.  It is usually a best bet to save to the local C: drive and then copy/move to a flash/external drive later.

It was saved to a network drive. They have been instructed before to save locally, I use the desktop as an example, and then copy to their network drive, but I am sure that this is not the case.

I guees this is a lesson from the school of hard knocks.  Saving to a local drive first is the safest way to go.  Most of the time you will be ok, but all it takes is one failure to make you regret testing the fates.  It always happens at the worst time.  :-(  On the bight side as we always used to say in my office, "It is faster the 2nd time you draw it."  :-)
