    I have the same problem, don't have to explain everyone has done that already.

    It just doesn't make any sense, I looked all over my computer for the names of the files that are missing and none can be found. So if they were deleted a file recovery program could maybe find them right?

    I'm wishing that Mac had a system restore program like windows does, so you can go back to a previous date (and I'm not talking about time machine which requires an empty hard drive).

    Wow! i thought it is my machine or GB preferences setting that's wrong until I found this forum. Same problem. My #aif files are missing. Do we have any reply from Apple yet. I did not have this problem on the old GB version. Just when I thought upgrade to a later version will enhance performance but on the contrary.

    What I do now is share every single named track (dry) to itunes and whenever i need to open the project,I just drag them back individually as if creating a new project. It ***** but voice recordings are available.

    I've reinstalled GB, but to no avail. After I record something I can see the .aif file in the Media folder within the project package, but as soon as I save the project, the .aif file is gone for good. Although copying the .aif file to the package root does solve the problem it's an unacceptable bug.
    Imagine if every time someone saved a Word or Excel document just reopened it to find their work was gone? And the idea that you have to pay for Microsoft Office and GB is a bundled application wouldn't hold – when we buy a Mac, we are paying for all Apple's development teams.

    Hi Ed_Ok,

    I had the same problem. Really weird for an apple application, which should be stable.

    I opened the folder of my Garageband project. While Garageband is open... the recorded audiofiles are in the folder /Media/ but not in the folder /Recordings/ which is also strange.
    Anyway.. I saved the project and the audiofiles are still there. But when I close Garageband, the audiofiles dissappears!

    1st option I tried:
    I deleted every preferences files and folders which is from Garageband, but nothing helped.

    2nd I tried:
    I created a new user acount on my macbook. I logged in on my new acount and made a new recording with Garagaband. Saves the project and closed Garageband. And now the audiofiles stays in de folder /Media/ !!!

    So this will tell us that the bugg is connected to the user account and not with any preferences files, folders etc.

    So please, post your experiences.

    Hi Jerrykooyman,

    I have exactly the same Problem as you with my Macbook Pro, but with my Mac Pro everything works fine.
    If i record as another user it works also with my Macbook Pro.

    I hope we find a solution!
  • Jerrykooyman Level 1 (0 points)
    Hi Bumpi,

    Thanks for your answer.
    This means that it has to do with some file in the user library.
    But the question is: which file?

    Maybe it's a good idee to make a backup of your current user library (which works fine with GB), and as soon possible when the problem is there again.. to compare the two library folders.

    What do you think?
  • Jerrykooyman Level 1 (0 points)
    This is really frustrating !!!

    This night I was working on a recording.. for a few hours...
    and after saving the project... all the files were GONE again !!!
    I don't get it anymore. Please.. who know what going on with GB?
    This problem I never had before with GB from iLife '08.
  • Jerrykooyman Level 1 (0 points)
    I deleted Garageband '09 and installed Garageband '08.. but the problem was still there.
    So it must be something in the OSX system. Does anybody know if it has to do with Snow leopard?
    Before I used Leopard which doen't give this problem.

    I'm very dissapointed in Apple these days
  • Jerrykooyman Level 1 (0 points)
    HI Richard,

    ****.. I have the same problems!
    Did you ever used OSX 10.5 before Snowleopard?
    Cause I can remember that I never had this problem with OSX 10.5, but only since I use 10.6
    Another point is.. that I fixed the problem by making new user acount. That worked.. just for a while

    I think I go back to 10.5 and have a look if that helps.

    Hi everybody there,

    I've been dealing with this problem for a few months now (too way long) without any lasting success. GB worked fine for a few days after some update or after reinstalling Snowleopard, but reappears again and again.

    I can't be reinstalling the OS all the time or waiting for an update to fix the problem, there must be a way to fix it, or not?

    I've asked in another threat about the same issue for a way to contact Apple about this really really annoying problem. Does someone knows a way to address the company about that?
  • LigOFE Level 1 (0 points)
    same... losing files everywhere... stopping using garageband today, because if i open any projects they are likely to lose everything... unless the files are all already gone....

    Apple need to get to sorting this soon.... i don't need 3 new kinds of ipods, just a working computer which i've already paid for....

    I've tried angrily tweeting at Steve Jobs, but he didn't reply. Those **** corporate fat cats :/
  • stilllife6189 Level 1 (0 points)
    These problems don't occur in Logic 9, do they?

    I'm thinking about throwing in the towel and upgrading to Logic, although I can't help feeling like this is a dirty marketing ploy to force users who are serious about recording music into purchasing upgraded software.

    Any conspiracy theorists out there care to weigh in?

    After recording a real instrument or voice,

    WITHOUT SAVING the project, open/go to the package contents of your file, then

    DRAG the .aif file or files you just recorded from the Media folder to the root folder of the project. (thus, when you open the package content you will now see the .aif/voice file without having to open the Media folder).

    Now you can SAFELY SAVE your project.

    In this way, the next time you open the project it will automatically search and find the .aif files needed.

    Do this ALWAYS BEFORE SAVING each new recording, and your project will stay intact.

    This solution was first posted by Kappatone on page 2.

    It takes up some time but so far it is the ONLY SOLUTION that works for me.
