Session Directory?

• Nov 14, 2019 - 08:35

HELP! I accidentally discarded my work and now i can't find it anywhere, let alone even find what the Session Directory is!

Every X minutes during a session (the time period is customizable in Preferences—default is 2 minutes), and when you close MuseScore, all open files will be auto-saved to the session directory. Browse this directory to locate a backup of your file. Each file will have an auto-generated name, "sc*.mscz"— sorting the list by modification time may help you to find the file more quickly.

I have tried all these and the paragraphs below it but i am still getting nowhere!


If you deleted your file, I don't think you'll find anything useful in the session folder. Instead, simply check your Recycle bin (Windows) or Trash (macOS) or whatever the equivalent might be in Linux.
