GustavoOaxaca.aup3

That name looks OK, but one quick and easy test:
Move or copy the project to the root of your home folder and rename it to “test.aup3”
Then try and open it.

(I’m expecting no change, but it’s an easy test, and my final idea is a bit complicated)
I’ll be back tomorrow.

Hey Steve

I tried the test but it didn’t work. I’m going to go ahead and delete the file unless you have any final recommendations.

Thanks
C

One last idea:

  1. Open the AUP3 in DB Browser for SQLite in the usual way
  2. In the “Database Structure” tab, right click on “project” and select “Modify Table”
  3. In the pop-up window, change the word “project” in the first text box to “unused”
  4. Click the “OK” button
  5. In the “Database Structure” tab, right click on “autosave” and select “Modify Table”
  6. In the pop-up window, change the word “autosave” in the first text box to “project”
  7. Click the “OK” button
  8. “File menu > Close Database”

Now see if the project will open.

This is what comes up after following those instructions. Thanks again for all your help. Its much appreciated.

Going to delete the file now.

Thanks

As I think I said at the start, I was not very hopeful, but we tried :wink:
We’ve exhausted all the possible ways of recovery that I can think of.

Thanks so much, Steve. Take care.

C, I would like to take a look at your project. If you care to, zip it up and upload it somewhere; then PM me a link.
