Greetings everyone. Recently I have been very happy with my recording and diving more into how inserts and FX Sends work well with Cubase. Many years ago I recorded 3 albums worth of songs but had a issue with the saving them so they are now lost. Now I'm older and wiser with better equipment I have decided to make sure I save the project. Now I'm not sure who or what is at fault but I did copy and paste my folders to another hdd for safe keeping (nothing deleted just copied) and Windows 10 updated. The next day I went on and it's like half of my tracks have gone and I have 31 projects on the go and not only that, but some of my projects were missing files but they were unrelated to that song (that is probably more confusing to me). I will break things down because I don't want to dribble on and become more confusing. When I was saving my projects I was just pressing save as (name of song) and then loading up my default project for another song then pressing save as again. I did realise that I needed to use backup up project so I did this for all of my songs in separate folders. Could they have got messed up? I'm currently redoing my songs since I have lost weeks of work (inserts, FX Sends some guitar parts) and I have done one folder and saved everything in their own folder inside that one using back up project and then pressing save. Is that the correct method and does pressing save, save to that project now? I'm currently using Cubase Artist 8.5 and my problems above were less depressing because I can load the Inserts using preset manager. Can this be done with the FX Sends or do I have to keep loading them up individually? I apologise for such a long post and I appreciate any help given. Jamie.
