    When happens to files after a crash?

    I was applying an effect which caused MC to lock up and I had to force a shutdown.   When I rebooted, a video mixdown that I had done before the crash (but probably after the last auto-save) was gone.   I did a new mixdown but I suspect the file to the old mixdown is still on my hard drive?   How can I identify it and delete it?

    Use the media tool to look for it. It will most likely still show up in there. That's what we used to do when Avid would crash when digitsiing. The clips were gone from the bin but still could be found in the media tool. From there you can drag them back in to a bin. You can sort by drive, project etc and use the column data to help locate it.

    and if the file you're looking for has just been created and you can find it in windows explorer easy:


    put it into a new MediaFiles/MXF/[subfolder], let avid scan

    and drag the resulting .mdb into a bin
