Mysterious disappearing of my work!
So I just created a new project, and I don't know what happened, but my other project, to be linked with the new one, mysteriously disappeared. I renamed it, I can't remember correctly what I did, but I'm sure that was a safe name to use. But other than that, It shouldn't have just disappeared from my sessions folder?

Is there a way to retrieve it? I've worked about two weeks on it, and I'm not willing to start again.

I was looking for a project after a crash once and as I stumbled through the sessions folder I noticed some .bak files. One had my {project name}.bak. I renamed the file to {project name}.dmx and was able to recover 90% of my work.

Looking at my sessions folder today, I do not see any .bak files, but I have been able to save all my sessions for sometime now and they might be removed on a successful save.

Anyway, check for {filename}.bak files in your Sessions folder. If there are some there,
rename them to {filename}.dmx, then try to load that.

Well I have no bak files in my sessions folder.

Is this the correct path?
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\SourceFilmmaker\game\usermod\elements\sessions

Oh, I fixed it!

So basically, I searched up my filename on the C drive, and found out that I forgot to put a .dmx after the filename.

So I put the tag there and then moved my file back into the session folder.
Wow, I solved my own problem for once!
