It sounds like that file may be infected with a virus. Often when a virus attaches itself to a file the file will be much larger after all a virus is a program, and a program takes so much disc space. I would just use the older version of the file, unless you have made too many changes to that document. If you have to file open how about copying and pasting the contents into a new document. Normally I do not recommend you to open an infected file as you would be running the virus application, infecting your system more. I am saying if you already opened the file to try copying and pasting the contents. I would do a malware and virus scan to ensure your system is clean.
