After the last Premiere Update all of my Projects I ever did are gone from the storage on my advice, nowhere to find. I've already been searching everywhere, what can I do to get my Projects back?

An update never deletes project files from the hard drive/s. If the Preferences are deleted during uninstall/install the projects will indeed disappear from the start dialog, but the physical project files have been left untouched on the hard drive/s.

 

When you say "I've already been searching everywhere" i assume that you have used a file browser such as Windows Explorer of Finder and searched, not just browsed, for *.prproj on all hard drives and not just one. Correct?

 

There is a search function in all file browsers.

Don´t get me wrong here, but what are you trying? 🙂 Do you know more precise where you saved them on your laptop, iow on the Desktop or in a dedicated folder or?

 

What OS are you on, Windows or Mac OSX?

Where did you originally save them?

Are they on an external drive that is not now connected to the computer?

Do you have backups or autosaves?

I  did only save them on my Laptop's internal drive without backups or autosaves. I know, it's silly, I now learned.

As i wrote before, use the search feature in the file browser you use. By doing that you can search for files with the ending .prproj. Those are the files you are looking for. 

 

You can spend decades if you just randomly look for files in folders. Use the search function and find all of the files within minutes. If you don´t know how-to, press F1 for help or do a Google search. The help is there, just listen to it.

Ive never seen anything like it. I had the same thing happen this week. After the update I am missing finished sequences from projects.  These are finished sequences that i saved constantly some where completely finished. The sequence file is there but nothing on the timeline.
