The snippets/list.xml file (and its backup) are zeroed out.  I doubt that the information that used to be there can be salvaged - I hope you have a backup copy somewhere!

It's possible that your hard drive is failing, or that the filesystem is becoming corrupted.  Try backing up your hard drive and then scanning it for errors.

If you don't have a backup and scanning your hard drive doesn't produce any salvageable data, your best bet would probably be to start from scratch, using the haxe files under behavior-hx as reference (these contain the code generated from Stencyl's design blocks.)
