 Hi Nathan,Those notebooks are corrupted. Even the procedure described here was unable to restore the entire content, most of the content was deleted. Are you the original author? If so, do you recall how they ended up in this state? Did they ever work correctly?

 Yes they previously worked. All I remember was closing them and then re opening them like that . . .Yes I am the original author.

 Hi Nathan,I opened "Nathan_Stronkowsky 2.3.nb real.nb" in a text editor and noticed that several double quotation marks within strings delimited by double quotation marks were not escaped with a backslash. I manually added the missing ones and now the notebook opens without an error but with a warning that the file was edited outside of Mathematica. The content appears to be OK, however if you make a change to the file and save it then it gets corrupted again. Not sure why. Try copying the content to an empty new notebook a few expressions at a time to see if you can re-create it and save it without the corruption.I have attached the version I manually fixed.

 How many edits did you have to make? And how can I know when to edit to fix this is the future? I have to make sure double quotation marks are properly "escaped with a backslash"?

 Hi Nathan,Don't remember how many edits I made. Noticed that they were all associated with image compressed data and were embedded in a Print that contained images e.g. Print["****F)Pimlico: "] The compressed data string for the images is not correctly escaped within the string being printed. I think this is a bug. You should report the issue to Wolfram Support.Avoid printing images and I think the problem should go away. I manually fixed the other file, see attached. Attachments:
