Lost Logic Files

mikearemu
Explorer | Level 3

Hi Everyone. I lost all my Logic files and bounces after repairing my MacBook Pro. But before my computer crashed, I used Dropbox smart sync to sync my Mac to DropBox. I'm now only able to retrieve every other file(Desktop, downloads etc) except my logic files and bounces. 

Although, for some reason, even before my laptop crashed, I couldn't view these logic files on my dropbox but each time I opened a logic project on my laptop, the logic files were retrieved from dropbox. My logic projects were saved as packages not as files.

Please does anyone have any idea on how I can retrieve my logic files? It contains all my music projects for over 3years

What is www.dropbox.com/events show?

 

Unless you explicitly moved the logic folder saving structure to Dropbox they wont have been syncing with Dropbox

I believe they were cyncing because each time I opened logic session, I see the files being recalled from dropbox. The files were not being retrieved from my computer.

So, to open they HAD to be on your computer.... either downloaded locally via SmartSync when you tried or already in a folder. It isnt possible to not open them any other way. But then if you did use SmartSync after you finished with the files you need to manually say no local sync. 

 

However, if they have been syncing BACK to Dropbox they will appear on www.dropbox.com/events

Oh wow! I could see a lot of my activities in logic here

 www.dropbox.com/events , although not all of them. That means they were syncing. So how do I retrieve these files ? This is definitely hopeful!

Hey @mikearemu, I hope you're doing well! 

If the content is within your file retrieving window, you should be able to click on the blue hyperlink of the Event and then see the restore option on the top right.

Keep me updated with any progress!

Thanks. I couldn't find the restore link. I could download the documents and MP3 but couldn't download others, I suspect they might be my Logic files. Can they be restored from Dropbox backend?

May be a restore link that will allow me restore checked items

Support can only see exactly the same as you on that link given. So, if the files are not on that page then for whatever reason they didnt upload.
