Hi,

I worked on a project for a couple of days, then switched to another project and completed that. Today I tried to reopen the previous project but it's nowhere to be seen. I know it was auto-saved because that's how I reopened it earlier. I also noticed that every other project I've worked on, bar the most recent, is missing from the Auto-Save folder. Am I missing something here? These projects surely can't just cease to exist.

more than likely the location of your autosave folder is not where you think it is.  do a search for your project name and see if it turns up, probably in your user/documents/adobe folder...  I'm wondering why the op was opening autosaves in the first place.  If your premiere project file is kept in place that you choose, you should be able to find it...

Thank you............in future I will be adding 'save as' on top of the autosave so I'll have multiple copies all over the place.  No idea why autosave decided on putting it somewhere odd....but suspect probably my fault in not resetting it from a previus project.  Thank you again!
