I've never had an issue like this so I'm unfamiliar with encountering a corrupted SolidWorks file. When I try to open this file I get and error message that reads, "An error was encountered while trying to open your file. Contact Technical support for a possible solution." 


I've attached the file wondering if anyone else can try to open it, the version is 2017.  I've tried moving the file, opening it from different menus, the file was never saved to a network server. I've cleared cache data, I've opened SolidWorks Rx, and cleaned all the different directories in the system maintenance tab. So now I think the file is just corrupted, I was wondering if there is a way to recover any data?
