Hell Marian Kocmanek,

I have a file - https://www.dropbox.com/s/upokqent5dayi3j/Marketing_v1a_2016-01-20.mmap?dl=0 - that MindManager reports has a "Zip archive processing error" and "Invalid file format, directory record is not found."

If you could repair the file, I would be most appreciative.

My email is robinm@gmail.com.

Thanks,

R

Hi Ignacio,

I am glad it worked.When I opened your map on PC I saw the an error "(919:15478) Illegal xml character."
Mostly illegal character gets inserted into the map by copy & paste from PDFs or Word or any MS office applications.

Or

The XML error could possibly be associated with the double byte characters in non supported language.
I would suggest you to copy-paste first in Notepad and then copy-paste again into map  in order to avoid XML illegal character error.

Thanks,
Shilpa

Thanks a ton Shilpa Kabra!

I got the file, safe and sound. Seems like you saved it to an earlier mmap format, I guess.

Have a nice day,

Philip, it looks like the mmap files was corrupt.

I was able to repair it by renaming it to ZIP and then using DiskInternals ZIP Repair. Then, I extracted the document.xml file since the document was still corrupt. 

Could you please have a look at this file and see if it works for you?

Hi guys! Help to deal with corrupted files. Just started using MindManager, and once with the files there is a problem. I also want to understand its cause, and whether it is possible to fix the files myself, because I want to structure a lot of important information and the program is like, and here such a hindrance.

One of the files was fixed using the method  Mathieu van der Wal.

But in this file, the archive remains empty: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5Atw-bW0ZAgNGJpNW1VcVlPY0E

I’m not sure why you have posted a question regarding Arcgis, which is a geographic mapping and information system, in a help forum for MindManager, an unrelated program offering mind mapping capabilities.
