Cannot Find Score in Sib. 7

Postby sus4 » Wed Aug 09, 2017 3:18 pm

Don't know what happened, but I cannot find one of my scores in Sib. I did a search in Spotlight and nothing turned up. I looked in Time Machine backup and again could not find anything. Don't know if I accidentally deleted it, looked in trash, not there. Don't know if I accidentally saved it in or with another score. I would have to look in every single score to check that out. I do have the printed score and parts which I printed out a while ago. Does anyone know of any other way of finding this score?
Thanks.

There may be a saved backup of the score in your Backup Scores folder. The location of this folder is given in File > Preferences > Saving and Exporting. By default the last 200 saved scores are kept, so you may be lucky and find it there.

I'm not aware of any issues with Sib 7 deleting files by mistake.

Thanks for your reply. Looked in back up scores folder as you suggested and couldn't find it. I looked in Time Machine my back up program on my Mac and couldn't find it there either. The only alternative I have is I've got the score and parts printed out and just create a whole new score in Sibelius using the parts.
Thanks

Sorry about that, it's a bit hit and miss with backup scores. If you have Photoscore (or another music scanning application) you might be able to 'recover' it that way, though that usually involves a lot of extra work.
