Project is Corrupt from the Desktop

When opening an Audiobook file that I am working on from my Desktop, I get this error message with this code which I chose to send in an Error Report. Is There any chance that this file is not lost forever?

Yes. In most cases you can recover it completely. See: Corrupt or Otherwise Broken Audacity Project Recovery

Thank you for the Info. I will let you know how it works

Do you have this for MAC OS?

No. You are going to have to ask a friend with a Windows computer who is willing to help.
