If it is lost, try searching the entire computer using the search function by entering the file name.

If you've accidentally deleted it, there are ways to retrieve it, but it is quite technical, so you will have to research it and find the best method that you think is suitable.

search your hard drive .xml & .xml5 files, look for your project file name,
you may get lucky.

@miya : C2 normally backup and auto-saves files, try to search for a .backup or a .autosave somewhere

@miya you can normally rename Newproject.capx.backup1 to Newproject.capx , then try to open it, maybe It'll work

the .uistate is not needed for the project to work, so don't worry about this fileAphrodite2013-12-23 07:00:24
