HI All Just backed/Moved my Ardour session files from my smaller SSD drive to my external drive. I now cannot run the sessions as no sound files are found. This is five weeks work missing. As I have moved the files not copied them I have no way to get them back. 1 Where did the sound wavs go were talking gigs of wavs, there not in the Bin or on the original drive I have two PNGs of the empty place holders when I open Ardour This is a serious problem guys. Where did the files go?? Cheers Bob

You should find the original wav files in your "project_name"/interchange/"project_name"/audiofiles folder You should be able to import them into a new project at the very least. My Advice: Copy them back to the original drive, at the original position to see if you can open it there again. If you can, do the following: Make a backup of, and edit your project file (on the SSD drive), "project_name.ardour" and look for occurrences of the original position of the files. Your project file as moved to the SSD drive probably still refers to the original location. Change these to the new locations, and save. If all went well, you should have everything back again.
