Accidentally saved files in 2019 beta - How to open them again in 2017?!

So I have been evaluating the 2019 beta and saved my files one day without thinking about the problem with backwards compatibility. Now the beta period has ended (actually it technically expires on the 24th, but Solidworks is saying "This limited life version of SOLIDWORKS has expired"). I have Solidworks 2017 Premium installed and am no longer able to open these parts. I need to access these files for work, what are my options?
