Hi community...please help!


I deleted video preview files and now whenever I open the project it says they're missing and tries to locate them. I skip or click cancel and the project just hangs! I have tried creating a new project and dragging everything in to there as well as clearing cache but regardless it still looks for the 'missing' files and then refuses to open fully. I can see all the folders etc but it is just hanging.


I left it for 30 mins just in case it was a little slow in rebuilding what it needed to but the spinning beach ball of death is still ever present.


The project is pretty large with a lot of mixed media (user generated stuff).


Any ideas?
