Logic froze while I was working on something so I forced quit.  Now every time I open LOGIC a message pops up that says:

"Error reading/writing file


Logical end-of-file reached during read operation."

The only button option is cancel so I press it and another message appears that says:


"The Preferences are not loaded completely.

Do not save them, as you would overwrite the Preferences file with incomplete data."


Then when i close logic a box appears saying:


"The Preferences are not loaded completely.

Save them to "" anyway?"


There are 3 button options to press; ok, cancel or dont save.

I press "don’t save" cuz I don't want to ruin anything.

I found a discussion located here: that says if I delete the file "" it will resolve the problem.  If I do this will I loose or mess anything up at all, automation, saved channel strips customizations, saved effects, synth, or ultrabeat customizations etc? Or especially will I loose any work I've done?  I have hundreds pieces of music files I've created.  I'm scared to mess anything up with all the hours and months of work I've done.  Is there anyway to fix this without loosing anything?  I'm using Logic Pro 8.


Thank you

Logic Pro, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
