After losing my Iphoto library to Carbon Copy Cloner which completely erased my Iphoto library due to a glitch software after 3 months of painstaking efforts and every data recovery software in the book, Thanks to Stellar Phoenix I have been able to recover what appears to be the Iphoto Library only trouble is now it wont open, I tried to open it using Iphoto library manager and all I got was a message saying " the album data file for this library is malformed. Unexpected character at line 1" Please tell me what do I do now?
