.mprj Corrupted file
Hi. When I attempted to open Maschine to continue work on this project I've been working on forever, easily the best beat I've ever made, I was given an error message stating:
"Error loading project file
Error: This project filed cannot be opend. The file appears to be corrupted."
Yes, the word "opened" is spelled incorrectly in the message.
Is there ANY WAY at all to save this file?
copy, rename and resave - that always worked for me, it's happened about 3 times in 3 years.
make sure there is absolutely NOTHING behind/after j in the .mprj - delete any invisible spaces when saving with new name.
I apologize, I've just put quite a lot of work into it to have it suddenly up and corrupt.
I attempted to make a copy of the file and resave it, then renamed it. However, it still is unable to open due to corruption.
Any other ideas or tips?
I appreciate the response.
sorry dude that's the only way I have ever managed to open a file when it's gone bad...i feel for ya because when mine went i too was like WTF but luckily this method worked.
daft question - you haven't gone backwards on maschine updates or anything?
do you want to PM me the project file and i will see if it opens?
To stop this happening again, backup! Your computer's OS is more than capable of currupting any file on your HD at any time! And rename your saves:

= 2nd project save on the 24th April. I increase this number whenever I make a significant change to the tune. You have the added plus of being able to go back to a previous version of it.
interesting method, probably a lesson there for us all.
did u hit up tech support to see about this
were your projects on your cpu harddrive or external?
It was simple did u make sure update was completed fixed it for me
What update are you talking about...? My software is version 1.7.2....
I'm really upset. Still haven't retrieved it six months later.
got the same problem... this is just so f*cked up! worked >30 hours on that track. are there really no options?
I thought mu 1.7.2 was installed but wasnt once it got installed it worked np
Yes, make sure you have successfully updated to 1.72 Click the NI logo at the top and see what version it displays. If that is not it then it may be lost.
Holy crap this just happened to a track i spent countless hours on for a second time now! Does anyone know how to fix this? Seriously, please. This is ridiculous NI!
make a copy of the file and rename it using .mprj
that should solve your problem....
I don't get what you mean. I have renamed the file "lost file.mprj" or just "lost file." Hell, I even named it just ".mprj" and I'm still just getting that stupid "file cannot be opend" message. This is ****ing ridiculous. I just lost another project for no reason at all other than shoddy NI coding.
