Hey everyone. I hate to start another one of these threads but here goes.
I am working on two major projects right now. One is a scoring project and the other is a recording project.
I have a Sonica Labs Hush quad-core 2.66 with a main drive, a sample drive, and an audio drive respectively named C, D, and E. I am still running XP 32 professional.
Today I was getting a couple glitches when playing back some RMX grooves and a simple bass line and I thought that that was weird as this machine has never shown any signs of stress during performance. Realizing that I hadnt cleared my internet cache in a while, I did the whole thing of clearing temp internet files, cookies, history, and all that from Firefox and used the disk clean-up utility in windows on C drive. After that, I rebooted, then opened Cubase 4 and went to the "E" drive where I store all my project files. So far so good. I click "E audio drive" , then "Cubase Projects", then it shows all of the folders that I keep of my projects. I click on the folder of the last project that I was working on and the pc doesnt respond for a moment. THen, a window pops up stating " The disk in drive "E" is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?" THen I say to myself "What the #*%^?!!!!. So I say no of course and then check other folders. All of the others seem to be there except the two last folders that contain the projects I have been working on recently. Now I feel like I want to puke. Worse yet, if I hold the cursor over those two folders without clicking, it says "Folder Empty". Is this a hard drive crash? WTF? I am about to freaking cry! Seriously, I just recorded this guy for about 12 hours over the past week and it all seems to be gone or corrupted or something. I used the Windows search function on the audio drive and it cant find the files. It finds the folder it was in but it doesnt find the files. All my other files are around. Any suggestions? I think I'm going to be sick.
