My computer crashed and despite my QGIS project saved the project.qgz is now zero bytes. I tried

zip -FF Sissons.qgz --out fix.zip
Fix archive (-FF) - salvage what can
    zip warning: Missing end (EOCDR) signature - either this archive
                     is not readable or the end is damaged
Is this a single-disk archive?  (y/n): y
  Assuming single-disk archive`enter code here`
Scanning for entries...
    zip warning: zip file empty

Other files (dbf, prj, shp, shx) are still present. Is it possible to rebuild my project with these files?

    You've lost the project, but you still have the data. You can rebuild, but you'll have to re-do the symbology.
