The mass corruption bothers me a lot... it'd point to something
systemic, like a BIG voltage spike (had any lightning storms lately),
physical hard drive problems... something like that.

When you're saying the backups are corrupt too, you mean the file, or the backups of the entire project?

If they're clean, restoring your last system backups is the best thing
to do because you haven't changed anything in 6 weeks.

If you're saying you didn't back up your work and all the files
involved are corrupted... to the point they won't open, or some info
inside is twisted, or something else?
