If you don't have a working backup, your file is lost. Take a look

And there are a lot more out there.

The bug has been present for some months now, and there is no real
solution. I would *strongly* suggest to use something else than
Thunar. The bug is ugly as hell, and it doesn't look like it will be
fixed in the near future.
