    Studio 15 - Restoring project from partial archive?

                  So, I put a lot of work into a project and was nearly finished. I had saved the project when I was worried the studio might crash. When I restarted studio 15 and went to load the project, I got an error message saying the project could not be opened. Now the project in the file is empty. I thought the project was lost, but I discovered 2 folders with the name of my project in the projects folder. I got curious and opened one.

                 One of the files got my attention, a "restore.plp". This got me curious and I tried to restore it, not knowing at the time I would have to archive it. It appears these folders and the files in them are part of an archive, but there is no .pra file or .prj file. I know this because I archived a small sample project as a test, and it created 2 folders very much like the ones I mentioned. The structure of the contents were identical. So I want to know if it would be possible to get the rest of what I need to restore the project. The missing .pra and .prj files. I still have all the media I used on the project. 

    Edit: I'll have to reply with additional screenshots below, as it will not let me attach more than one on this post it seems.

    This should do, I had two more but I don't want to spam my own thread.

    From your first Screenshot:

    1) Studio has created a Backup Project Folder; METALLY MONTAGE.(2) But hasn't created an associated STX File. 

    2) Rename Metally montage STX File to Metally montage.(2) (Same Project Name as the Backup Folder)

    Keep up the good work, Colour.  For some reason, we've had quite a few folk needing your help, lately.  Wink
