Open recovered project from formatted drive 20 Nov 2021 07:38 #117570

Hi friends, I had to recover my FCP libraries, events and project after I formatted my external RAID with time machine (crazy action I know). Before I did not make a backup of the stuff on the formatted drive and I did not make the library ready for moving it to another drive. Now I recovered the raid and wonder how I should open the project. Can you help me? I am afraid the paths of my projects could be corrupted if I just open the project on my computer.

Opening a Library is opening a Library, period. You just open it.

All drives should have the same contents, and bear the same names.

Where was FCP set to make backups to?

Thank you for the answer Ben. I opened the recovered library and the paths are destroyed. I will try to make an image of the time-machine formatted drive and hope will work better. Time consuming.
