It sounds like you attempted to save the model using the SketchUp save dialog. You need to use the OpenStudio toolbar save command.

@adhilton Can the previous model be recovered? Or do I need to make a new model from scratch and then save it using the openstudio toolbar?

Unfortunately I don't know of a way that it can be recovered. You're probably going to have it make it from scratch, sorry.
