I saved my QGIS project as a .qgz file and then my computer crashed (however I can't confirm that the saving had completed successfully). After restarting the computer, however, the .qgz archive no longer works and crashes QGIS when I try and load it.
The QGIS desktop window begins with the ~"Loading project:" project tracker with the green bar in the bottom panel but stops immediately and freezes the program to the "crash report" window.
If I try and open the archive with 7zip I get an error message "Can not open file '...' as archive".
Is there any way to access or repair information from a .qgz file/archive?
alternatively ... does QGIS save a backup of the archive or just the project file on the computer somewhere similar to the .qgs~ file in the old system?
I get the QGIS crash report shown below:
