Files are Gone- Ableton live 9

Post by DJourdan » Fri Jun 19, 2015 8:50 pm

I have been on live 9 recently and realized that all of the sounds, audio and midi effects, packs, samples and much more is GONE. Just GONE. :cry: :( :? It is been absolutley fine until now. The worst part is, there is no message saying "media files are missing". Please help. :oops:

It's probably the indexer. Maybe the table that stores the locations got interrupted and/or corrupted. I'd start by trying to get Live to re-index.

If you mean "gone" as in nothing shows up on the right hand side of the browser, make sure the search field (just above the browser) is empty. If there's an X in a circle on the right hand side of the search field, click that to clear it.

If you (perhaps inadvertently) entered something in the search field and nothing in the library matches, nothing will show up in the results pane on the right side.
