    usually you can restart simul8,and it will guide you to recover the model. you can also rename the bk8 file to s8.
    or Windows>Temp folder,there is some file called emsave_.s8 that may be helpful for recovery. or in Windows\temp\s8temp
    folder there might have file called ”~und1.s8” . Try...
