I created a complex scene. I put a lot of Boolean modifiers (without Apply) on various objects. Now the file won't open and hangs. Is there any Safe Mode in Blender? For example, a ban on the calculation of modifiers when loading a file. Blender version 3.6.2.

    $\begingroup$ Try opening a new file and then seeing if you can use File > Append to load your objects from the file that Blender won't open directly. You may be able to just add some of the meshes without the boolean objects (assuming you've named them appropriately so that you can tell which are which!), or load them in batches and disable some of the modifiers before loading more. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ No it doesn't have Safe mode which is why I suggested trying to append your objects a few at a time into a new file. $\endgroup$

I used the backup file *.blend1. It had fewer objects with the Boolean modifier. And everything was restored. Safety in Blender is provided by backup files.
