failed to open session

Hi Derek,

I wanted to review an old session recently to output a new set of wavs from the file. Opening the session either in explorer or within wavcor resulted in no action being taken. Attempting to review the session file in the properties dialogue produced the following message: "An attempt was made to access an unnamed file past it's end."

What does this mean? More importantly is the session file now useless? Is the .bak file any use at this point?

The root folder containing the origin wav that the session is based on would have been moved from one location to another, but this has caused no problems in the past, other than forcing me to locate the origin file (which is always already in the same folder).



Goodness, windows file properties indicates it is an empty file - 0 bytes! What the heck happened?!

Hi Glenn

I've no idea what's going on here! Is it the session file that's empty (0 bytes) or the wave file?

You should be able to use the backup file by renaming it from ???.bak to ???.ses

Have you tried this?

Let me know how you get on.

Hi Derek, yes, it was the session file that was empty. I've no idea how it happened....stange indeed.

I tried your suggestion to rename the .bak file which worked quite well, thank-you!
