Hi, @akashk 

Please refer to these related threads on the same topic.

All-of-my-PBIX-files-are-getting-corrupt 

Corrupt-file 

Corrupt-file-Can-anything-be-done 

 

This is most likely related to the incompatibility between the Power BI Desktop version and pbix file version.

When was downloaded PBIX file created and  what version of Power BI Desktop was used to create this file ?

Please make sure you have update to the latest version , and try to open that PBIX file again .

 

Best Regards,
