How to get lost bins back

Hello everyone. So I created and organized a lot of bins and sequences before editing my project that I have to complete for my winter class. Once I was done organizing all of my clips into several bins I was finally ready to edit. I started by creating a title page by going into titles and graphics mode. Once I created the title page I exited out of that mode and all of my bins and clips are gone. It took me so much time to organize all of my bins and clips and I only have a week left to finish this massive project. I was wondering if there is a way to get all of my bins and organized clips back. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I've been working with computers in my business since what, about 1986? I've have every possible type of computer mess happen. Never, ever, EVER assume that computer is saving anything. 

 

Make sure the auto-save function is set. It is by default, and ... checking your Project settings, it will show where that is. You might have your project in an auto-save version with that work still there.

 

But always ... while working ... every time you do anything 'major' like an organization thing, redo a sequence, do some color or audio work ... just get in the habit of tapping Ctrl/CMD-S to manually save that file with the new work.

 

Probably at least daily, do an iterative "Save-AS" to say Project03 ... next day is Project04 ... and always, after doing the iterative, open and continue from that project.

 

Also ... Save a Copy to a different drive or system! Every day.

 

 

Follow the above, you won't lose much ever.

So when you open  the Project panel, there are no bins inside?

Are you in Icon view and on the top level inside the Project panel?

I actually was able to get some of my bins back but the others are still gone. I'm unsure how to take a screenshot from my mac and send it.

I was eventually able to get all of my bins back but they keep disappearing and reappearing again so I'm really confused.

I checked my settings and my project was on auto save the whole time so I'm confused as to why my bins are still gone.
