Lost instrument parts after crash

• Feb 12, 2017 - 00:40

I was trying to save my score as soon as it was 100% complete, and it crashed. As soon as I opened it up I had lost all of my parts except for one of them. I don't know if there is a way to revert to an older save or if I just have to start new. I am really upset that I had lost my best piece so far.

I have attached the file of it.

It used to have 2 vocal parts, 2 guitars, 1 bass guitar, 1 drumset, congas, and bongos. Now all it has is the Bass.

Please help

It looks like you tried to save one of the parts by itself, not the score - did you use Save As, while viewing a part, and then give it the same name as the score, and then answer "Yes" when it asked if you wanted to overwrite the file? That is the only thing I can think of that would explain what you have described. If so, unfortunately, I fear MuseScore did exactly what you asked it to, and overwrote the score with the part.

Well, it's also possible you simply attached the wrong file, and your actual score is simple somewhere else - a different folder, perhaps.

Depending on the operating system you may be able to find a utility online that might be able to undelete an item marked as deleted by the operating system. Many operating systems save the new file, then delete the one being replaced, so it could still be on the hard drive.
