Where are you saving these files? Dropbox, Google/MSoft drive, locally or some other location?

Hardly likely that a normal program like C2 can both corrupt files and alter file associations. When was the last time you did a full AV and Malware scan?

Have you tried a clean re-install of C2?

The file you've attached has no visible header structure. It looks like it has either been encrypted by another program or had it's header information deleted somehow.

If Bitdefender mistakenly identified your C2 files as harmful, and is set to fix infected files, this could be the issue. You can try to see if Bitdefender has some vault for backups and try to restore. This is just me guessing as I have never used Bitdefender.

Closing as there is no evidence Construct 2 caused this problem. It sounds like hardware failure or a virus or some other fault. This is why you should keep off-site backups.
