    Hey guys!

    So I accidentally deleted one of my Logic Pro X projects, and I want to recover it.

    So here is what I got so far.
    If you Right Click on a Logic project and select "Show Folder Contents" you will find the main folders from Logic, and Under Alternatives - 000, you will find what I think it is Logics main file, "Project Data"

    So after figuring that out, I got "Data Rescue 3" and using its "FileIQ" Function, I tried to "teach" the software to look for that type of file.
    And then finally, after a long scan, I recover that file. I can that that is the right file, because once I open it in a text form, I can see the instruments and the name of the files I used.

    The problem is, I can't open it!
    If you grab just a random project, and copy its ProjectData file, to another one, it will work!

    So my conclusion is, I recovered the file, but because the Recover Software is old, It is not able to recover the file on a proper way!

    Anyway, I know the data is there, I just need to find a way to make it work again!

    What does "I just can't open it" mean specifically ? Do you get an error message? Does the app not see it to open? What happens if you right click on it and choose "open with"?
    Is the file suffix missing? Eg word files end with docx, numbers with numbers, is the suffix for Logic Pro x missing and needs to be added back?

    Yup, i get an error message.

    If I try to open with, nothing happens,

    The Suffix is fine, even when Copy and paste the information inside the files, without replacing it, It does not work
