Hi all. Unfortunately, I can't open the .psd file after sudden reboot of PC due to power surge. When I try to open it, I get this message.

The file may be corrupted if the system couldn't write all of it out before the power shut down.

Unfortunately, I haven't another copy of the .psd file. Is there any programs, which will help me to restore corrupted file?

There are programs that can try to extract usable data from a corrupt PSD. But from your description I doubt that they could extract anything (it sounds like the header is bad).
