Recovering Projects?

Question

Ok, so recently I restored my computer back to its original factory condition because of damage done by a trojan. This deleted nearly every program on my harddrive, including Roxio. Anyways, I just reinstalled Roxio 2011 and I cannot edit any of my projects I was working on before everything happened. I figured that I'd have to do the whole "browse for files thing" but I can't even do that. When I try to open projects directly from the file, nothing happens; and when I try to open it when Roxio is opened, it just previews the video I was working on, or a window pops up that says "This production is missing files. Please edit it and locate the missing files", but as far as I know it gives me no way to edit and locate the missing files.

So my question is, does anyone know how I can open these files as projects and continue to edit them.

Did you recreate the same path where the files used in the project were saved (photos, audio files, vide files, etc) prior to restoring the computer to its original factory condition? The project will be looking for those files in that path.

It is curious behavior...

 

If VW is open and you 'Open' a dmsm project file with missing files, nothing happens...

 

If you open the same Project file from within VW, then you get the message and click on Show Files:

From there you can pick the file or in this case the 2 are in the same Folder but I had renamed it...

Then it should return the Project the way you left it

Be sure you save it so it updates the locations ;)

Ok, things seem to be working fine now. Well, I still have to do the whole "find missing files thing" for certain audio tracks here and there, but it is actually WORKING. I don't really understand why it started working again, I'm just glad that it is :)

I just remember that I asked a question about it here, so I'm sorry that I didn't respond right away.

Oh, and it wasn't giving me those windows you (Jim_Hardin) posted pictures of, it was acting really funky. Now I'm getting those windows and I'm able to get my files back.

Anyways, thanks for the help!
