Today I have opened the saved file and the application has refused to open it, app has given an error message: Error Opening Graphics file. Now I don't know what to do and how to recover corrupt file of corel draw x5.

You could try looking to see if there are any other versions of this file on your system. Open Windows Explorer and browse to this file then RIGHT click on the filename. At the bottom of the pop-up menu that appears you will see 'Properties', click on this and a dialogue box appears. Click on the right hand tab and see if there are any other versions listed. If there are, see if you can open any of them.

There is an interesting method to get .cdr file back. You need to rename .cdr files to .zip extension. Then try to open it via WinRAR or WinZip and apply recovery feature. After all, of it unpack this file and open it in any version of CorelDraw.

In event of it wasn’t successful, apply https://recoverytoolbox.com/coreldraw.html it is powerful solution

Look at https://support.corel.com/hc/en-us/articles/216435747-Backup-and-Recovery-in-CorelDRAW-X6

If the file won't open because of corruption...running the chkdsk /r command would be my logical choice of actions.  Both on the O/S partition...and whichever partition the data files are stored on.
