Hi,

I lost my data after recovering the data when I'm opening the saz file it shows me this error. "The selected file is not a Fiddler-generated .SAZ archive of Web Sessions."  Picture attached. A quick response will be highly appreciated 

Regards,
Raph

Can you elaborate more on how was the data lost and what was the recovery mechanism? If possible, you can also send us the corrupted SAZ file privately (use nikolay. iliev at progress.com).

It was deleted from my hard-drive so I use recovery software to recover my lost data, when it completed most of my SAZ files aren't opening by fiddler but I can open few of them

The SAZ files created by Fiddler are actually ZIP archives that have a specific file order. To learn more about this, refer to the article provided. If you are unable to open the ZIP archive, try changing the file extension to *.zip and use any tool that supports ZIP to open it. If you still can't open the archive, then it's likely that you have lost some critical file data. However, if you are able to open it successfully, you should see a folder that contains a list of the captured sessions. You can then recover these sessions, provided they are not entirely corrupted or missing critical data.

I tried to convert that saz file into zip file and it is not opening by tool that supports ZIP, so in that case there is no remedy for recovering it.

You could try to recover the ZIP file through some advanced ZIP recovery tools.

As a side note, the new Fiddler Everywhere has a cloud save functionality which apart from its collaboration capabilities, can protect your data in similar cases.
