Vivado destroy all files in project folder

I use Vivado 2015.2 to create a project, import and edit files. Let's call it project A.

Then I use Vivado 2016.2 to create another project B. I try to import IP from project A folder but I forgot to package A as an IP.

So I go back to A and I found that the 2015.2 IDE has already stop working. I use Ctrl+Alt+Del to close it.


The consequence is EVERY FILES IN A become 0xFF, with the original size. The zip of A is attached. Even for files which were not added to the project become all 0xFF. How does that even happen????


Luckily those Verilog files are copied from other project and I just lost 1 hour of work. But I doubt when will it happen again.
