Score cannot be opened

• Sep 18, 2023 - 00:56

Hi - I created a score and saved it on the "cloud," but when I click to open it, I receive a message saying, "Your score could not be opened. This score is invalid." I'm not sure why it's invalid. Is there a way to fix this?

Here are some things that you could try:

  • Restart Musescore 4.
  • Sign out and then sign in again in Musescore 4.
  • Sign in to and check if you can download a copy of your score from there.

If that doesn't work, you could try the following:

  1. Open Musescore 4.
  2. Go to Diagnostic > System > Show paths in the top menu.
  3. Locate userAppDataPath: in the list and double-click on it.
  4. Your file manager should open. You'll see a folder called cloud_scores. Open it.
  5. This folder contains your cloud scores. Try to find the file in question by opening one at a time or by looking at when it was last modified.

For future reference, best practice (at least in my never-humble opinion :-D ) is to always save your work locally (on your hard drive). Use the cloud only for completed work to share it.
