Work irrecoverable. (6 hours work in my case).
A devastating failure.
Check the autosave files

Where are the autosave files?
Unfortunately https://musescore.org/en/handbook/4/backup-and-recovered-files is in its infancy...
There should be a scorename.mscz.autosave File right next to Scorename.mscz

Have found what I think is the backup copy: how do you restore it? It doesn't seem to have an associated app ...
Rename so it has a .mscz extension

Thanks; found it but it's not got the bulk of the work I did...
Not to worry - I can redo it ... but I'll export and save as I go along ...
Thanks for your help.
