auto search thru live is terrible

you must have a clip in the set refering to one of the files you deleted, delete all clips in the project

or, if you do want to find the missing

look at the name of the missing file, go find it thro your os's search, then find it thru live's browser, drag it onto the help window where it lists the missing files

it seems you dont actually want to find it? you just want a clear set?...if so, delete everything in the set, all clips, instruments, drumrack, Everything

go into preferences/file-folder and hit 'save as default set'

if that doesnt work, reinstall Live

ok!maybe I understand. it's possible that I hit save as default during my first set. i don't want to find file, but open the program and work without any error message. i can't find the first set. how to save as default a clean set?
