PSD is the only format that can support the whole image color mode, and can save Photoshop layers, channels, paths, etc. Lost or deleted unfinished PSD files would get us into too much trouble. There are several general cases and solutions to help you save the day.
Part 1. How to Recover Deleted/Lost PSD File
1. Recover deleted PSD files from computer
•First check recycle bin. If not, use professional PSD recovery software.
•Download and install RePicvid Free Photo Recovery.
•Select photo recovery and target disk. Then choose PSD format in "Advanced Settings".
•Scan the disk and preview deleted PSD files.
•Recover deleted PSD files and save them to a selected folder.
2. Recover unsaved PSD files after Photoshop crashes

•Start writing to the PS crash file. Except for the one that caused the crash, the rest can be saved.
•Locate the saved file according to the location of the file.

Part 2. How to Repair Corrupted PSD Files
To be honest, there is no absolutely useful method to repair damaged PSD files. Solutions are offered on the premise of file damage is not serious.
1. PSD files can’t open after abnormal power failure
Different software has different definition of PSD corruption. If you can't open it, try other software and save it to a new PSD, such as Adobe Illustrator, SAI, Pixelmtor or Graphic Converter, etc.
2. Repair PSD file that is damaged or corrupted
Appeal to some PSD Repair Tool to recover corrupted PSD files, such as PSD Repair Kit, Stellar Phoenix PSD Repair, Remo Repair PSD, etc. But it still depends on the file damage level.
3. Valid Photoshop documents
Shift+delete the original corrupted source PSD file and try RePicvid Free Photo Recovery to restore it. It is not feasible to delete only the backup file and recover it.
