  It is not empty.  It contains only bytes of value zero, the integer 0
(almost two millions of them, as you noted).  The file is corrupted.
It contains no useful information, except that its size in bytes
(1,977,307) may be an indication of how big the original file was.

  It is extremely unlikely that it was TeXworks that corrupted the file,
or that it was corrupted over email.  You must have done something at
some point that resulted in your file being overwritten with zero-value
