My project disappeared from Premiere Pro! I have been working on the same project every night for a week. When I went to go open it up in premiere it was gone? I've looked in all my files no where to be found. The last project says opened 4 days ago but I was on premiere less then 24 hours ago.. What happened? How can I get my work back?

Check the Project file location in the Project Manager of PrPro or use you search management in your computer and look for .prproj files.

Hi baileya,

Did you ever locate your project? Please check your Auto Save folder for a more recent version if you have not already done so. Let us know what's going on.

Thanks,
Kevin

I am so angry I am in tears and more than likely will never work with this video editing software again! I can't find auto saves the saves I did manually NOTHING! It shows my recent projects were last month when I just was working on it last night!!! I pay for a service and files are automatically getting deleted I am beyond pissed!

Did you read any replies above and look for your file?

When you created the project you had to select a location. Have you looked there?

PrPro doesn't delete project files. Sometimes it forgets where they are, and you need to navigate to them manually.

And really Basic Computer 101  ... you always make a copy for backup. Period. I do hope you don't assume an autosave feature relieves you of the responsibility to work safely on a computer.

If you used the default project save location, try looking here:

/users/YOUR_USER_NAME/Documents/Adobe/Premiere Pro/12.0

I'm assuming you're on a PC

I found the project file. it had been oddly saved under the wrong name on a separate external hard drive. This happened because im not used to  cc2018 and  the screwy way it deals with having multiple projects open at once. I find that I think I'm saving to this project when in fact its saving to another project I didn't even realize was opened. What a scary experience! I'm going back to 2017.Thanks for your assistance!

In the Preferences / General / there is a setting to open projects in a new window instead of a new tab. This might reduce the confussion for you.

thank you all so much. i am a noob with the software and didnt think to check the auto save folder. i found the latest auto save version. For some reason when i accidentally hit save as instead of save it deleted everything from the project area when i reopened it... it was all displayed as one merged clip in the imported files area.. i had no choice but to find an auto save version simply because the background music wouldnt have matched after cutting and editing more... thanks again everyone...!
