I saved my recorded but mid edited video and now cannot locate it!  I have looked under File > Recent Projects > the .trec file isp there, but when clicked it has no edited version that I had completed.  I also looked in tem files, nothing.

Hi there

If you create a new project and from there click File > Save Project As... do you see your project in the location offered in the save as dialog?

Cheers... Rick :)

Unfortunately not.  It's almost as though the original in its entirety is gone.  Even with all its edits.

Perhaps I never saved correctly.   When i progress through my editing, I have clicked on the File drop down > Save project as > and save in the Camtasia Folder and name the file.  The save type defaults to .camproj, is this correct?

Indeed it should.

Have you used Windows Explorer to see if anything resembling the file is there?

What location are you using?

Cheers... Rick :)

Hi Judithbradley42,

The default save folder for projects is in My Documents > Camtasia Studio. 

If not there, maybe there is a copy saved with your project auto-saves - why not try looking in C:\Users\<YourUserName>\AppData\Local\TechSmith\Camtasia Studio\8.0\Auto-Saves ?

Regards,

Aaron W.
