I have been working on one project on my jupyter notebook for days but python stopped working for some reason. I continued working on file as I was editing some markdown cells.

After reopening jupyter, I am not able to open that file anymore:

Getting this error

Other files are still opening. What are some options I can try to open this? Or is there any way I can open my ipynb file and copy the contents to another book?


Turns out this happens when our file has .~ prefix in the file directory. Removing that prefix and renaming the file works.
