I’m having a significant problem with a number of my Cubase 11 projects (but not all). I have used Cubase daily for five years – and I’ve never seen anything like this.
(1) On a project I’ve been working on for several weeks, “Properties” confirms that the project has content (other, larger projects appropriately show more content). See attached screenshot #1.
(2) But opening the project icon does not open the project, but instead opens an empty folder (attached screenshot #2). The four folders contained in this new folder are empty (including “Backups” folder).
(3) When, back in the first screen, I go to “Backups,” all the backup folders do appear. Again, all of these folders show that they contain content. But opening ANY of these folders results in the screen “No items match your search” screen (screenshot #3).
There is no way to open the original project, nor any backups. This occurs in all of the project files and backups in about 20% of my project folders – both new and old. (The total number of my project folders is about 100).
I downloaded and installed the Cubase 11 update. Unfortunately, when I tried to open the two CPRs you sent, the same “No item matches your search” window appears.
I wonder if the following is relevant – the slow-downs began at about the same time as the current problem
(1) Starting Cubase after PC startup is slightly longer than previously – 30 seconds vs. 15.
(2) But opening the first existing CPR (i.e., with content) after PC start-up is about 1:20 – vs. 15 seconds or less previously. (This applies to CPRs with as few as four instrument tracks.) Subsequent CPRs open quickly, as expected – about 15 seconds.
Starting a new project from the hub remains instantaneous
Thank you for your good advice. I’m putting off the system work you suggest until I finish my current project. I’m probably obsessive, but I did some recommended system work a couple of years ago, and my system went haywire – resulting in a week’s downtime. A PC professional finally figured out that an unforeseen error in my system resulted in other cascading problems. Only a couple of CPRs in my current project are affected, and I can work around them. Again, thank you. I’ll report back when I run the checks you’ve suggested.
