This happens to me all the time, what os have you got, photoshop doesn't like Mojave, I had to uninstall and go back to high seria
Have you tried renaming your document, and also closing photoshop down, are you using CC Adobe

What happens when you try to open the file in these other apps?  Is there an error or an unsupported file format or ... ?

This typically means that either the file is corrupted or you have something preventing Photoshop from reading it. It has nothing to do with Mojave. You may or may not be able to open a PSD in another app and saving it could flatten the file and delete your layers.

Try restarting the computer and opening the file from your internal hard drive. Also, do you have a backup of your files?

What David said ^^^  8-)

What version of Photoshop are you using and what OS are you running on?  Is there a reason you haven't updated, cuz it's looking like one of the releases from two years ago?

Thanks,
David

Hi Debbie,

I can guess at what might be the problem, but I can assure you that the latest version of PS runs fine on the latest Mac OS.  So, in this case, Photoshop 2019 on Mojave.  Typically, Adobe supports at least two major releases back and tests accordingly.  Yup, just checked.  I have 2017 on my 10.14.2 box and it works fine.  There's got to be at least one more element in play here.

Please let me know if I can help you troubleshoot it.

Thanks,
David

Hi Deboraa,

It is possible that your particular file has become corrupted, in which case the data is probably lost.  That's a very unlikely event, so if you're seeing this with multiple files, then far more likely is that your OS is having some problem that's preventing PS from correctly reading the documents.  This is pretty much what David was telling you as well.

If you want to test your particular file to see if it can be recovered, try this link for other apps that can read PSDs: https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/the-best-ways-to-open-a-psd-file-without-photoshop/ .  Or try here https://www.lifewire.com/psd-file-2622194 or here https://www.howtogeek.com/362162/how-to-open-or-convert-a-photoshop-file-if-you-dont-have-photoshop/ or here https://www.techjunkie.com/open-psd-without-photoshop/ ...  If nothing can open your file, then it's almost certainly corrupted and the data lost, just like with a corrupted Word or Excel or PPT file.

Hope that helps,
David

Deboraa, did you eventually solve the problem and if so, how - I have the exact same problem right now and I am looking for a solution.

Hey Brian,

Could you share the details of your situation?  I never heard back from Deboraa, but maybe I can solve your problem.

Thanks,
David

Thanks David. I am in the middle of a photographic assignment and I am using PS CC on a Mac using Sierra 10.12.6 and I am trying to open a tif file and I get the message "Could not complete your request because an unexpected end-of-file was encountered. The previous tif files open in PS CC fine but from this point forward the files will not open, not even in PS 5. Can you assist? Please!

I have come to the conclusion that the files were corrupted - probably from a premature terminate of file transfer to tif. I have retransfer the files and they seem to work fine now. Thanks.

Hi everyone. I have the same problem. I'm using Photoshop CC 2015. Windows Starter. I don't even remember which file the error means. Any help? Thanks

Hey everyone! I understand the answer has been posted many times, but unfortunately, I don't understand what was being said. I'm a Grade 10 student and I simply draw on photoshop for fun, so I don't understand as many functions about PS as I wish I did. Whenever I try to open a certain file, the error "could not complete your request because an unexpected end-of-file was encountered" pops up. Does anyone know how to fix this? And if so, do you think you could dumb it down a little for me- haha.

Howdy GildedWolves,

Tell ya what -- wanna send me the file and I can try and play with it?  No guarantee that I'll get it to open, but it'll be easier.  You can send me an email (assume the file is NOT zipped or too big!) to: david (dot) mohr [at] ad o be <dot> com, ok?

Have a good one,
David

That would be a huge help! I'll send it as soon as I can, thank you :)
I've gotten along just fine without the file, so if you can't seem to work it out it's no problem.

Howdy Phorn,
What OS are you using?  Because CS6 was made a VERY long time ago and may not work with current Operating Systems.  Usually two versions back is all that's supported for sure.

Thanks,
David

Hello everyone,

Finally after searching tons of time about this problem I am facing on Photoshop. Recently happened to me too. I even tried the way of creating DWORD (32) but it's not working. What I have noticed about the reason of this problem, if you accidentally turn off your pc or laptop while the application is saving your file, high chances for corruption of the file is possible.

Now you can get your corrupted .psd file back using CorelDRAW I am using version X7 so you can give it a try in X7 or don't know about the older versions. You might not get some of the effects you have used in Photoshop. The only problem is that you'll be only able to edit your .psd file with all the layers within the CorelDRAW itself, you can save the file in PSD format too but it will be in JPEG image inside.

I am having this problem too with a large .psb file, about 200 MB. I upgraded my operating system from El Capitan to Catalina, and now I can't open the file. I have a backup, but I get the same response with that version. I am pretty sure it has to do with the operating system upgrade. Should I update photoshop too? I am not sure I should do this because I don't have tons of space on my computer, I have enough, but I not a ton. Thank you.

I encountered the same problem. Importing it in illustrator didn't work & Krita messed it up too much.  ..importing it in After effects as a composition did the trick!

Guys try opening your psd files here https://www.photopea.com/

If you can open your file on this link then you'll be able to save it as PSD in your system and it will open fine

This really worked for me

Must Try
