I just had a corrupted .qvf file in Qlik Sense 2.2.3
It was a QVDGenerator, so I was mainly interested in the script.
My first learning is that the script is stored as a compressed text in the binary file. So no chance to access it by opening with notepad, etc..
I then send the file to Qlik Support, and they were able to recover it!
I asked if there is a way to get the recovery-tool, but currently there is no plan to do so.
Also they told me, that there were quite some fixes that should avoid corrupted files in later Qlik Sense versions (>=2.2.4).
I am having the same problem with opening app in Qlik Sense (I think I closed the app while it was saving because it lasted forever).
Is there a way I can send my app to someone from Qlik Support who can restore it?
I am not able to log a case for the very same reason - my login does not work for this.
Were you able to open a Support ticket for this issue using the info from this document Qlik Support Portal Update? Or do you need assistance getting in touch with Support?
