Corrupted file - any chance to get it back?

• Feb 28, 2021 - 15:56

I tried a few articles, File Explorer is telling me it has data in it (not 0 bytes) but I can't get it to open. I've also read some posts about being able to see hidden files but no luck there. No autosaved files for that version in %LOCALAPPDATA%\MuseScore\MuseScore3\ either :(

Please, I'd appreciate it any help.

The backup file is created when you first save a modified version of file after having opened it. So if you ever owned this file then worked on it and saved it, the backup should be there. But, if you created this file and did all your work in a single session, never closing it and later reopening it, there would be no backup file And the autosave file is kept only if there is a crash, otherwise it is deleted when quitting MuseScore normally.

I assume you are on Windows; if you didn't disable OneDrive when setting the system up, there should be the previous saved versions you can restore using that service.
