Local File

• Jan 23, 2024 - 11:48

Hello, I was working on an online score on my Musescore 4 app on my laptop, and when I clicked save it said I didn't have connection to the online version so my changes would be saved to a local file until connection returns. I looked all over my laptop and its files but cannot find the modified score anywhere, is there any way I could find it?



Folders where you can search for musescore files (Windows) if you did not save one:

  • C:\Users\{YourUserAccount}\AppData\Local\MuseScore\MuseScore4
  • C:\Users\{YourUserAccount}\AppData\Local\MuseScore\MuseScore4\cloud_scores
  • C:\Users\{YourUserAccount}\AppData\Local\MuseScore\MuseScore4\cloud_scores\.mscbackup
  • C:\Users\{YourUserAccount}\Documents\MuseScore4\Scores
  • C:\Users\{YourUserAccount}\Documents\MuseScore4\Scores\.mscbackup
  • C:\Users\{YourUserAccount}\Documents\MuseScore4\Cloud Scores

This list may be incomplete or incorrect though

Also Musescore saves backup files in a hidden .mscbackup folder, which is located in the same place as your project file

If you find something interesting, copy that file to another location and open from that new location
