I am missing a whole bunch of files because I blindly cleared my downloads folder, or moved like 5% of all audio files in my project. It upsets me because it clearly shows the files in my project and the effects and things I did to them. Obviously no one wants to go and redo all of that, but I'm just wondering;
Since Premiere Pro recognizes the files and the work I did to them, is there a way to load all the files without having to get them again.
I am fine with not having the audio files when I finish it, I just don't get how it doesn't keep the files in it's original state.
Error or problem, Import, User interface or workspaces
No, once you delete files from the disk they are gone. There are apps that can recover deleted files and the thumb of rule is to stop using the disk directly if you want to have them back. If you continue to use the disk and write over the disk the lower the chance for the app to recover anything. Google if your friend here, tons of apps and info.
