HELP: Recover deleted project

PostFri May 19, 2017 7:44 am

Right-click deleted wrong icon. No warning. See no UNDO button. :o

It likely is "someplace."


Leaving WIN 10 PC as is.


On Mac there was a a folder in Documents but seemingly not in Windows.

Projects are stored here:

C:\ProgramData\Blackmagic Design\DaVinci Resolve\Support\Resolve Disk Database\Resolve Projects\Users\guest\Projects

('guest' might be your user name if you've set one up).

If it's gone, you might be able to use Piriform's 'Recuva' to restore it: https://www.piriform.com/recuva

If you already have an undelete tool installed, try that first since it's better not to install anything to a disk you want to recover data from.

... Users\guest\Projects

Only the remaining project is here, but Preferences still notes I have 4 projects.

I assume since there was no warning Resolve must move deleted projects someplace. I assume because there are warnings with every delete!
