    I was working with my project when my pc shutdown, probably because of heavy loading stuff I was working with. But now I can't open it anymore... is the only project I can't open.

    First, back EVERYTHING up.

    Then try deleting any folder called Temp/ within your project.

    Then open Unity.

    If that doesn't do it, delete any folder called Library/ within your project.

    If that doesn't do it, make a fresh project and start copying things over from your current one.

    I'm sorry you've had this issue. Please consider using proper industrial-grade enterprise-qualified source control in order to guard and protect your hard-earned work.

    Personally I use git (completely outside of Unity) because it is free and there are tons of tutorials out there to help you set it up as well as free places to host your repo (BitBucket, Github, Gitlab, etc.).

    You can also push git repositories to other drives: thumb drives, USB drives, network drives, etc., effectively putting a complete copy of the repository there.

    As far as configuring Unity to play nice with git, keep this in mind:

    Here's how I use git in one of my games, Jetpack Kurt:

    Using fine-grained source control as you work to refine your engineering:

    Setting up an appropriate .gitignore file for Unity3D:

    Generally setting Unity up (includes above .gitignore concepts):

    It is only simple economics that you must expend as much effort into backing it up as you feel the work is worth in the first place.
