Re: PBIX file corrupted

Hello @Greg_Deckler,

 

Do we have a cause for this behavior of the pbix file?

Or some recommendations of how to treat it in order to avoid falling into this scenario.

 

Thank you!

Re: PBIX file corrupted

April 2018, this also happend to me. One day of work in the ballance.

Any new solution? None of the above worked. And why does this happen? I saved the file with no problems. Then it was impossible to reopen and no recoverable versions where available even thou the auto recovery was enabled.
Thanks.

Re: PBIX file corrupted

I have downloaded PBIX from Power BI service and try to open it but it shows Corrupted file or Invalid file and unable to open. Any body has idea about this why is happening sometimes....

Re: PBIX file corrupted

This happened to me today. Lost over 3 months of work. Such a pain. I am afraid it might happen again in the future 😞 Might switch to Tableau

Re: PBIX file corrupted

Hello,

 

the same issue happened to me today when working in 32 bit version of Power BI Desktop (which is unfortunately required in my project and can't be changed). None of the proposed "repairment steps" (with zipping the file etc.) below your complaint helped me, @willnic. However, when I opened another pbix (the very old version of my recent pbix with an obsolete model), Power BI Desktop offered to me to open autosaved files and my work was restored.

 

Hope it helps someone in the same situation 🙂
