Saving my presets(sounds)

hi,if i create a sound or tewak a preset on a vst i have been saving it as a track preset.
this is the purpose of this yeah?
anyway,i had to reinstall windows to new ssd few months back.
just today i saved a track preset,and have realised all the track presets i had saved over the years are gone.
i still have the hdd that windows was on before.
is there any chance those track presets are buried somewhere that i can get back?
i have done a bit of a look myself,but no avail

hi,thanks for reply.
in the old user folder from before i installed windows onto ssd
C:\Users\your_username*\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Track Presets
at this location the track presets folder is empty.
How could the track presets have dissapeared from this folder?

anyone any clues on this?

Maybe just search for trackpreset on that disk at first.

all one word as in trackpreset and not track preset or track presets?

ok so i tried trackpresets and track presets
only thing that comes up is the empty track presets folder
how can the track presets have dissapeared?


Where did you save the preset ? In the Vsti or in the inserted plugin window only?

Seems odd but i guess that you have not used “save track presets” in the Inspector in Cubase or else they would all be in that folder.

You must remember at least one name or your own saved presets so search the whole old harddrive for that name.

Please tell us more how you do when you are saving a track preset so we can understand your path.

thanks for your reply.
i save track presets in the inspector where it says “no track preset” i click on that and “save track preset”

Ok then its odd.

You have clicked the option in Windows so that you see all files etc. Even system files ?

Seems to me that the files are hidden in your new Windows installaion.

thanks for replies.
you see all files etc. Even system files ? i think i have. how do i do that again?
the files couldnt be in new windows installation could they? if they were never copied over.
keep the suggestions comming

hi again,
these track presets.where on earth have they went to?
i would not have deleted them,so surely they must be somewhere.
the strange thing is that the old track presets folder is empty.
how could it have gotten empty?

hi guys,back again trying to get another response on this.
what circumstances would have caused the track presets to dissapear?
like i said,i originally had windows on a HDD, then i got an SSD and installed windows on that.I still have the 2 HDDs (one of which windows was on previously)
abviously i had to reinstall cubase and all vsts(on the SSD)
but the old folders were not deleted from the HDDs,
so why oh why have the track presets from cubase gone?

stick the old drive back in and boot from it, check the track pre-sets are there. Then at least you’ll know if your search potentially futile

thanks for reply,i hadnt realized u had replied.
i do have the old drive still in the pc as a storage drive.
sorry,i didnt make that clear
