    I created an XCode project. While doing a copy/paste to backup, Finder crashed and all the project files were gone in both the project folder and the backup project folder. All that remained was a folder in each titled "build".

    The console at the time looks like this:

    5/22/10 11:15:20 PM Xcode[26048] [MT] Uncaught Exception:

    I don't know where they went, nor does Apple Care, can anyone help?

    This also just happened to me. I have been using Xcode for six weeks only but every project I have done so far just disappeared. The directories remain with the en.lproj directory but all other files have been erased.

    Very odd bug and I need not say quite annoying

    NOTE: Re-created situation. I had moved the source files while having a project open. The alert offered re-save or close. I erroneously chose re-save. This explains loosing that project but not every other project
