Hello All, 


I have a text file that I used on Thursday and it was fine and when I opened it today I see this:

(I truncated what it is now)

I have no idea what this is or why Fallout 4 is being mentioned. 


I noticed in Notepad++ at the bottom it says UNIX (LF) and ANSI while all of my other files are Windows UTF-8.


Is there a way to recover the file? 


Thank you in advance for your time!

Unfortunately, that didn't work. Somehow it got transformed into a binary file and it's toast.  


Thanks for your time!
