Files recovered after crash
I have a major problem and hope someone can help me find eight lost files that MuseScore has apparently saved in a hidden directory somewhere.
While doing page makeup and formatting on a major work--three movements, eight parts, and score--I encountered a 'bug' which caused the program to crash several times in a row. I will go into the bug itself another time; I am up against an impossible deadine and that can wait. I NEED to find those revised files because the print version, which must be delivered tomorrow, needs a few additional revisions. But all I can find are the last versions saved BEFORE the crash. I have PDFs of the revisions, but the MuseScore files from which I generated them have gone missing. It took most of two days to make all those revisions, and it is impossible to re-do the page makeup, formatting, and edits they contain in the time available.
After a crash, on rebooting MuseScore the program asks, "Restore previous session?", and I clicked Yes. As usual, Musescore opened all the files (score and parts) showing the full file path name. I had had open the score and all the parts, but the parts had each been saved as individual files under new names because I had to 'unlink' them from the score for formatting and page make-up. All those files opened in the restored session.
I did the revisions on those files, being careful to save frequently, and (thank bog!) I even generated the PDFs from the finished revised versions before closing them. The file path showing in the tabs was correct in all cases, but now that I've closed them, I can't locate them where they should be.
Does anyone have any idea where MuseScore might have saved these files? I am running Win7 pro.
