I have a little issue which I am assuming is coming from Cubase’s automatic function to backup saved project files.
Of course I know how to disable it, which I don’t want to, because it’s a useful feature.
The thing is, that once I save a project file, and try to open it in my next work session at another time, Cubase tells me that this exact file does not exist anymore and asks if I want to delete it. Although I haven’t touched the folder nor the files in the meantime.
When investigating a little bit in the actual project folder, I can see the file apparently being renamed automatically to something like “saved_project-01”, which I actually saved as “saved_project”.
The weird thing is, sometimes it’s saved by Cubase in .bak (backup files) and sometimes as usual .cpr files. The original however, as which I saved it, doesn’t exist anymore.
I do want Cubase to back up my files, the naming (-01, -02, -03, etc.) is fine, but I want to keep my original file as well, the name I saved it in.
Also, in the beginning when I experienced this for the first time and pressed “Delete” when Cubase asked me whether to delete the file that doesn’t exist anymore, I hereby deleted the most current version of my project. All other saved backup or renamed files in my project folder were older versions, the latest one was gone. This I think can be a big issue, luckily it was just a minor setback for me.
I wasn’t able to find anything regarding this when searching for a solution.
So does anymore know what is going on here and why my original saves are being deleted after each session, or has anyone experienced the same problem before and knows how to fix it?
I am happy about any replies.
Happy composing and kind regards,
