    I am running CS3, and frequently get the following error message:

    'Could not complete your request because it is not a valid Photoshop document'

    And cannot open certain files.

    They are Photoshop files, created in Photoshop, and only used in Photoshop, and I am unable to open them - I am losing huge amounts of work and time

    First variant you may use if your .psd file was seriously damaged

    https://www.repairtoolbox.com/photoshoprepair.html Photoshop Repair Toolbox

    Another variant is…

    >Open "My Computer" from your desktop. Double-click your hard drive.
    >Open "Documents and Settings."
    >Open the folder labeled with your user name.
    >Open "Local Settings" followed by "Temp."
    >Scroll down to the files beginning with "Photoshop" ("PS" for older Photoshop CS builds). This will be followed by a series of letters and numbers.
    >Double-click each "Photoshop" ("PS") temp file to open them in Photoshop CS. This is the only way to identify which temp file contains the project you wish to recover. Luckily, because when Photoshop shuts properly it deletes its temp files, there should be no more than three or four.
    >Select "Save As" from the "File" menu when you find the temp file you want. This will make the file permanent.
