Not a valid font

I've been working on a font for four hours and have been saving as I make changes. Then... my computer crashed. :( I thought maybe I would've lost the changes I made to the last glyph I was working on, but when I go to reopen the project, I get the message "Project does not contain a valid font". I'm assuming I somehow lost everything, but I am posting here to see if anyone has run into this or has a magic fix for this.

If you can share the font project file with the *.fcp we can take a look at it.

Which version of FontCreator are you using? Is it registered?

Unfortunately, the file is corrupt and there is nothing there to recover. Just a load of NUL bytes.

There is a setting in Options, Advanced to save a backup file when saving projects. Look in the folder for any file with a *.bck extension and rename it to newfont.fcp and try to open it.
