Version 2.2.2 Windows 10 HP Envy laptop.
So I was going to remaster songs that I recorded 4 years ago with better music mastering knowledge unlike back then when I recorded added some effects and quickly put together but I digress…
I opened every single recording to a Missing file block error… so I would continue by saving the log file and checking the second selection for this session only. Then I got the orphan block message and saved that log as well. I curiously opened the log file and compared both the missing and orphan files… I only checked a few but they were the same. I even opened the raw files into audacity and they belonged to the project. Mind you this never ever happened before.
I may have been naive at the art of engineering back then and now to a certain extent but I know how to use the save functions of programs. I have all my data in the same folder as I did when I first started the projects. I did change laptops 3 years ago but I moved everything off of the old hard drive onto the new one…I didnt rename or change anything and it worked fine then. Heck I was able to remaster one song back in December with no issues (except I forgot to flat line the hi hat taps used like a metronome in a non drum part) So today I go to correct that and it said I had missing and orphan files when it didn’t before.
I like the ease of use of this program but with the issues with downloading version 2.3.0 and now this putting me in a tough spot financially as I may have to buy a program. I do clean my laptop regularly including disabling services and apps I hardly or don’t use. My hard drive is far from even being half full. When it comes to my laptop Im very ocd in keeping it running well. But for the life of me I don’t know why it’s not recognizing the orphaned files as the same files as the missing ones.
