I’ve submitted a support request for this but it says it might take a few days?! Phoned support and line closed!!
Yesterday I was working on a track. I saved the file throughout working as usual, closed cubase last night and thought nothing was wrong. I had no warnings or ‘save project under a new name’ or anything like that.
Today I opened the project file and it’s EMPTY. The tracks are there, all plug ins loaded, FX, but NO MIDI or Audio information!!! My worst nightmare…!!! (This track is for a client…deadline is Monday…)
I thought - that’s incredibly odd. I opened all the backup files. The oldest one, (the first one that would have saved) says 'invalid project file (backup -09). Backup-08 DOES come up with a ‘project is corrupt please save under a new name’ error. But it’s also completely empty. Backup -07 crashed Cubase trying to open. Backup -06 - 02 all open but are empty.
I’ve tried importing the tracks to a new project. The dialog won’t open when I try to do that. I’ve tried opening the project in Cubase 10.5. Still totally empty.
All audio files are in the audio folder in windows but the Pool is empty in the project.
The main project file and all backups have a file size to them which is giving me hope that they can somehow be revived. The main Project is 6.77mb.
Anyone, please, help?!
