Rev creates those files when it does a "save". From memory (not very
good), it first renames the current file from file.rev to file.rev~.
It then writes out a new file as file.rev. If that works, it deletes
the file.rev~ file.
If you see a file with a .rev~ extension, it means a save failed for
some reason. The likeliest cause is a permissions problem and not
corruption, probably on the folder where the file was saved. On
Windows, I think it is possible to have permissions that allow a file
to be renamed, even where you don't have permission to create a new
file. This would produce the situation where you see the .rev~ file.
I'd suggest you copy the .rev~ file somewhere, remove the ~, and open
it and see that it is indeed intact. If so, check the permissions on
the server location. If you can resolve that, try again.
