I'm quite new to QGIS so I suppose that this is likely an error on my part, but my project crashed and now whenever I open it I get the 'Handle Unavailable Layers' window pop up. I have never changed the location of my .shp files and so I press 'Auto-Find' or manually locate the .shp file in my directory and then click 'Apply Changes'. When the workspace is loaded, none of my assets actually show up, nor when I start a new project and drag a .shp file into it does it appear. Most of my assets were using .svg files which I personally imported but even normal .shp files with the default tools in QGIS are not appearing either. I cannot zoom to location or edit the layer in anyway to make it show up.
I managed to export it before it crashes so I still at least have an image of it, but I would like to prevent this from happening again. Here is what it looks like after I have loaded up the project file.
I am currently running 3.22.2 on Windows 10.
