Corrupted file doesn't open
S2 - Critical
Musescore crashed and the file got corrupted. I've looked for others with similiar problems but the main diference is that when I click on "Ignore" it just goes away and do nothing.
Tried to replicate the problem with no sucess.
I'm on Musescore 4.0.0 and Windows 11.
Some screenshots of the problem.

The piece is name "." and I was orquestrating it. That's why the file name is .Orquestrado (.Orchestrated).

Thank you so much! This means so much to me! I hope you'll get everything you want and need in this new year! (and sorry for bothering in new year's eve😅)
@underquark May I ask how you extracted the mscx file? If I extract the contents of this mscz file using a zip tool, I get everything except the main mscx file (I do have the mscx files for the parts (in the Excerpts folder), but not the main one). Thanks in advance!

Using ubuntu studio 22.04.
I changed the extension to .zip then used Arc. I extracted the files to their own directory. I think I had to change permissions on the file to allow Read and Write by all before I could work with it., Alternative strategies in ubuntu include using the command line zip and -F and -FF options but you'd be best to do an internet search for details.
Possible key point - i changed the name to one that Windows can handle (instead of .)
