The project monitor settings are saved to
%appdata%\TortoiseSVN\MonitoringData.ini.
They're saved on exit and loaded on start, with a retry count of 5 and a
wait time between tries of half a second.
There's even a backup file MonitoringData_backup.ini in case the
original file can't be loaded.

Not sure how it can happen that both files get corrupted on your machine.

But you can export all the settings (including the project monitor data)
from the settings dialog->Sync->Export settings to file...

If you do that, then you can restore all data easily again with the
"Import Settings from file..." button in the same dialog.

Also, you can set up a sync location, e.g. in your onedrive folder which
then makes all settings sync across machines - and as a bonus it also
creates a backup of your settings.
