I worked on this layer last night, and today I can't open it. This layer was linked to an excel spreadsheet. And perhaps even more interesting, I duplicated this layer and stylized it into a different theme. This layer was stored on external flash drive.

I will upload this layer:

Your attribute table (.dbf) has some strange contents. It looks like somehow it was corrupted by your link to microsoft.

Shapefile Technical Description shows how a shapefile's header is structured (Page 4). If you open any SHP file in a Hex Editor, you'll see that first 24 bytes of the header should be 00 00 27 0A 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00, but yours is 32 91 52 41 80 C3 3C BE 17 E8 58 41 5E 92 CF 09 41 91 52 41 EF 44 41 43.

Briefly, your SHP file is, I guess, irreversibly corrupted. It's not related QGIS. As @Kartograaf states, your DBF file has strange contents, too.

Somehow your flash drive might be corrupted. If so, there are many reasons of that. I'm not sure if it would help but I suggest you to try to use fixing tools for USB.

  • I think it is not possible to repair layer. But I still dont know what was happend, how I do it? – nagib Dec 14 '19 at 21:15
