I Dropped a project folder (about 15 GB) from my Cubase recording software over to the MyBook…then dumped from my main drive. Today I went to retrieve the folder and it and everything in it are designated “archive” files…like this: “arc_1003197463524…etc.” I don’t remember telling the MyBook to convert to archive or anything like that.
I desparately need these files…but can’t find a way to restore them to their original Cubase extensions. I’ve right clicked and told Windows to open the files with Cubase…but all that does is open the Cubase software.
I wonder if I should have created a folder on the MyBook and then dragged individual files to it. That’s what I’ve done with other files and they remain intact. But this one I grabbed up as an entire folder and dragged over to the MyBook without first designating a folder…really though…I’m clueless
