Adobe Audition 13. recover file opens but sesx file empty

The program locked up and when I restarted and opened the recovered file the sesx file lost all the work done in the editor. Is there some way of recovering that? All the individual audio files are there but the sesx file shows nothing in the multitrack editor.

Thanks for any guidance!

Where had you set the session files to auto-back up to? Depending on the interval, you should have most of your session back at least if you use the last backup from that location.

Steve,

It is set to Auto Save every 10 minutes and to backup Multitrack Session Files every 3 minutes. I worked on the project for 2-hours and the only thing that comes up are the files, not the work or anything entered into the Multitrack.

SteveG asked where you were backing up to ie the cloud or a local hard drive.

A local hard drive is the only place you should be settingh your auto-backup location to be.

If you want to send stuff to the cloud later that is your choice and you can control that but at least you always have your primary backup locally

I had the same issue - I think the problem is that you also choose the maximum number of backup files it will create. The default setting is 10 files (along with the specs above - every 10mins plus Multitrack every 3mins). When Audition froze and I had to force quit & restart, the last back up it restored to was from a few days ago - the 10th back up file. So I've now adjusted my prefs to autosave Multitrack every 20mins and allow up to 200 files. (Made up these numbers, could probably do lots more files.) Guessing this will help with backup safety.

I should perhaps point out that unfortunately, Audition doesn't always pick the latest session file as the one to recover from. Often you have to go into the recovery folder and select the correct one manually as the one to open. No I don't know why this is, but it's happened a few times now.
