    Is there a .bak that isn't too old, that may be your easiest option, did your system crash? there may be an automatic backup file if you have that option enabled, look at the support path for automatic backups which should be listed under - options - files - automatic save file location - probably something like C:Users\username\Appdata\Local\Temp\Filename.sv$

    And try:
