I Can't find Project file

PostMon Aug 02, 2021 12:13 am

Hello

I Can't find project files after moving some files to another folder.
Some project file could be seen, but when I open it , message will appear like below.

Davinci Resolve quit unexpectedlly


And most of my project can't be seen, but I could see project files in folders?

Hi Manabu

Given the date modified times on your screenshot, one of two thing is possible:

a. you have manually copied over projects from another database folder - since different databases may have different versioning, this may be the cause of the error. The correct method is to load the database in Resolve's project manager (or the Project Server) and copy projects across databases from inside the UI.

b. another software has write access to these folders and this causes modifications due to (say) a sync mechanism. For database integrity purposes, this is a bad idea as described in the database FAQs

The same FAQs also have instructions on capturing logs for startup stability issues and guidelines on what info to include (Resolve version, OS, hardware, peripherals etc) when reporting an issue.

Hello Shrinivas

Thank you for your reply.

Problem occured like this way.

When I opened Davinci application then Z:\DavinciDB folder can't be seen.

After that, I searched Z:\DavinciDB. Then I found Z:\DavinciDB in #recycle.

So I moved from #recycle to Z:\DavinciDB. But it won't work.

I don't know why .
Off course I didn't move DavinciDB to #recycle.
