First of all, please upload the .capx, so we can recreate the problem.

Second, try to extract the .capx with a decompressing application like 7-Zip and open the included .caproj.

Worst case scenario: you should by default have 'autosave' and 'autobackups' setup, so you should have some files in the same directory as the .capx with suffix of .backup1, .backup2 etc and .autosave: see https://www.scirra.com/manual/61/preferences.

You would just need to make the suffix .capx to enable them to be opened in C2.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Instructions for uploading the capx are in the "***MUST READ FIRST!*** Bug report REQUIREMENTS" post for submitting any bugs.

https://www.scirra.com/forum/must-read-first-bug-report-requirements_t61748

To save a .capx file, click "Save as single file" in the File menu. If you need a host, put it on a free Dropbox, OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive) or Google Drive account. We are unwilling to use file hosts which require an email address to be entered, and services which throw up loads of ads or make us wait for a time limit test our patience; use one of those three linked services which are all free and allow immediate downloads.

Due to heavy spam on the forum, we have to block the posting of links for new users. If your link to the .capx is blocked, either remove the http and www parts, or insert * characters through them, e.g.
example.com/myproject.capx
or
h*t*t*p://w*w*w.example.com/myproject.capx "
