How can I recover a corrupt Microsoft Project 2010 document?

I have an MPP file created in Microsoft Project 2010. It either hangs or causes Project 2010 to crash. It seems that there’s some corruption in it. I have tried downloading the (few) solutions out there without success. Not many good solutions it seems. Anyone have a clue to how resolve? This 7MB file is pretty significant, and rekeying it really isn’t an option.

    you can try some software perhaps there is an Option send to developers if you are interested and they can check if the file can be recovered

    You could try MPP Viewer -- http://sourceforge.net/projects/mppviewer/ which will allow you to view the file (obviously), print it and also export it in Excel format, from where you could probably reimport into Project...

    A very similar question was posted here recently, have a look there for some other suggestions http://www.makeuseof.com/answers/can-recover-microsoft-project-2010-file-wont-open/ .
