I’m not sure shy you assigned that to me? Anyway, your file seems to be a corrupted compressed one, it cannot be opened in 2.75 either. So what we need here is a way to reproduce such file…

Also, please always attach files here, pasteall is volatile storage…

I thought it could be a file browser/asset management issue, thanks for checking.
Not sure how to reproduce this again, so feel free to close the task.
I tried viewing the files and comparing them to the blend1 backup files and they do not match, the blend1 files do not open either.

Could be a corrupted file system issue.

Here is the same file for reference again if it helps in any way
