I have been trying to move my files from a computer to another, both running Cubase 11, and when I am opening the project in the other computer, some files simply disappear. I am transferring the entire folder, of course, and I checked that both folders are the exact same size. I have also tried doing a backup of the project, then transferring that - same problem. The audio pools have exactly the same amount of files - I even checked and the files that disappeared are STILL in the audio pool. I honestly have no idea what is going on here. I have tried multiple transfers, zipping the folder, etc. Nothing works.
Little bit of background: I have been working with Cubase for over 10 years. I have been using laptops, so I’ve had to constantly back-up my files to external drives. In all those years, I have never ran into this problem. I have gone through 3 laptops, always backuping my files to external drives, then copying them back onto the new laptop, or opening them directly on the drives if I just needed to do something quick. This issue has never happened before. I have just finally bought a desktop to complement my laptop (which I will use only for recording purposes - the desktop will be used to mix & master). Everything seems in order on the desktop - I have no errors when opening the files. No missing files to locate.
If anybody has any insight, it would be most appreciated.
