File will not open

I'm running FileMaker Pro 14.0.5 on a Windows machine (Win 10 Enterprise).  Over the last month I have had two databases I've been working on one day not open the next. When I try to open I get an error: "The translator for this file format could not be found or could not be initialized." I tried recover on the latest this morning and get an alternate error: "This file is currently not available for use on this computer".

 

I usually leave applications I'm working on open overnight and I'm not sure if it's coincidence or causal but on both occasions I returned to a computer that had been automatically rebooted.

 

Once is an anomaly but twice approaches a pattern and I don't want to have a third.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

Rick
