Premiere Pro 4 File Won't Open

Jul 17, 2011 6:31 AM

Hi all


I have an adobe premiere pro file that won't open. When I double click on it, the load project bar gets to about four fiths of the way, then it just stops. The last time I saved the file, I saved it to my computer, then I saved it to a portable hard drive to back it up (around four minutes later). Both versions of the file won't open. The previous file will open, but I have done 30 hours more work since then (on the new file). I thought it was enough to be saving every few minutes, saving back ups to a portable hard drive... I also have a raid 1 configuration! I was never expecting this. When I leave the Premiere Pro on the Load Project screen, it stays there for hours.


If anyone has any ideas I would greatly appreciate it.

    Did you try the autosave project files?

    Try opening PP first, then use the interface to open the project.  Also try opening other projects.  Also try creating a new project, and importing the problem project into it.
