CUBASE LE.
windows xp and a broken heart.
I got an external drive where I thought I had put my songs,but when I went in to check today the files were corrupted..some songs were missing tracks altogether and others for some reason played half a song and then would play another in the same song file.When I played them the first time they all sounded great,I think now,looking back,that what I was hearing was the song on the computer drive and not the external drive.
I expect the deleted songs from the computer can't be recovered eh?
If so,damned be the satanic arts. Evil or Very Mad

I don't think a system restore will do it....I think it only works on your registry and apps....not individual files.....Nomad 1970 is the guy to ask though....his real name is Emeric...

Porter would also be a good reference for a solution....

This program has worked well for me in many cases:

Worth a shot. It may find all your data, but it might take some reassembly on your part to get them back into working projects....

Bummer

because of just such an experience I now save sessions on an internal and an external drive while working on them so i always have a back-up, and check through them periodically to purge those sessions that I feel very very confident I won't be returning to. And I now only keep 'clients' sessions on my drive for 60 days after they seem to be finished and encourage them (greatly) to bring a flash drive or external over to transfer them onto. In truth I don't want the long term responsibility and don't see much 'added value' to holding someones sessions hostage. If they like d what I did, they'll come back.
