Beware of + sign in flename

Postby deckebac » Sun Jun 04, 2017 1:48 am

1) I created a multi-track song and saved it as "xyz" many times while composing. No issues.
2) I exported the song to a M4a file.
3) I created a new project and Imported the m4a as a track.
4) I saved the project as "xyz +"

What happened: "xyz" was overwritten with the new project. There was no "xyz +" saved. There was no overwrite warning. I lost about 40 hours of composing work.

How can I recove all my work? I asked MusicStudio to save to a new name yet it maliciously overwrote another project without even asking. Is this a feature?

Thanks for reporting this bug, I listed it as a known issue at viewtopic.php?f=8&t=7596&p=13585#p13585, it will be resolved with the next update.

I'm so sorry that you lost your project, unfortunately Music Studio doesn't have a backup system or trash yet. The only way to restore your overwritten project would be to restore your device from an old (iCloud or iTunes) backup, if you have one. But this would affect all your apps and iOS data, not just Music Studio.

:!: Until the next update, please don't use any special character (e.g. ? or +) at the end of file names.
