File that I can no longer open

Good morning.
I read books for the blind and use audacity.
I just read a chapter (one of the longest of course!) and I saved it…and I can’t open it again…I got the following error. Any ideas ? Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Bonjour.
Je lis des livres pour les non-voyants et j’utilise audacity…
Je viens de lire un chapitre ( un des plus long bien sûr !) et je l’ai sauvegardé…et je ne peux plus le ré-ouvrir…j’ai l’erreur suivante . Quelqu’un a une idée ? Merci d’avance de votre aide.

Tip for the future:

Once you have finished the recording, as well as saving the project alos export a WAV copy of the project as an emergency backup.
