opening.bak files
on Jul 8, 2014 at 8:25:46 pm

I have Sony Vegas Pro 12. I accidently deleted a project and was able to undelete a name.veg.bak file. I cannot open it. in older post it said put the file in vegas and it will open. Did not work . i got "none of the files dropped on vegas pro could be opened"

Another suggestion was to drag file on to the vegas icon. This opened vegas but a warning said "an error occurred while loading the project file" and the "file is an unsupported format" and the file did not open

You need to remove the .bak from the file name and then it should open as expected.
Once you recover it, immediately resave it under a new name.

Strange. That should've worked. Just to confirm you did rename it like myfile.veg.bak to myfile.veg, correct?

Sorry John but you have me stumped. All I can think of is that the bak file is corrupt :(

I'd recommend making sure you have visible file extensions:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/show-hide-file-name-extensions
(Google show file extensions 'yourOS'

Before you attempt to rename the file. If you rename without doing this you'll have 'filename.veg.veg.bak' with 'veg.bak' being the actual extension.

I already do have visible file extensions
