Help! How to restore a file? Illustrator left and nothing left? The process is not maintained.

To attempt recovery using Illustrator itself:
1. Create a new document
2. Select “place image” ( File > Place… )
3. Choose your corrupted file in the dialog box. Make sure you choose file types to ” ALL DOCUMENTS “, not just RECOMMENDED.
4. Save this file. If you cannot save this file (due to corruption), copy your vectors and paste them into a new illustrator document. https://onlinefilerepair.com/en/illustrator-repair-online.html
PROS: You should be able to select the corrupted file, and your vector work should be saved.
CONS: All layers will be flattened into one. PMS color info and placed images may be lost. File may still be corrupted.

Although recovery is possible, it sums up to one thing, backing up is really important.
