yeah, a machine doing such sensitive work should have been using some type of back up

he should try doing a Spotlight search with the exact file name, it just might still be there just not in the correct location, "Command-Space bar" buttons to pull up the search

or if want to pursuit it further buy a data recovery app from the mac app store, most of the time files aren't actually deleted right away, they are just "marked for delete" and kept in storage for a while, if DP8 somehow wiped the file it might still be in storage hidden

I will pass this info along to him, Juror.

I appreciate it very much.

Huge setback. Temporarily gutted....

In an unprecedented event (for me), after having the track 80% completed, the entire file we had for the track completely vanished.


The software we use (Digital Performer 8) even has an Autosave function so we are totally baffled.

Not looking for sympathy. But for the tens of thousands of people eagerly awaiting the track.......I have to totally start from scratch. There is an MP3 of the 80% we had completed but that will do us no good.


I’m just sitting on my balcony tilting with bourbon right now.
Jesus, this is shitty news
