I recently bought a new computer with OSX Catalina 10.15.6 preinstalled and I am running Logic Pro 10.4.8. Since I bought a new computer, I thought it would be time for a change and I began to completely clean up my system. I found lots of forgotten stuff, especially a folder called "Midi Chord Progressions". It was the folder where I used to put all of my best chord progressions in, which I wanted to use for future work. I used this folder until around 1 year ago, but for some reason I totally forgot about it until now.
Now my problem is, that I can not access those prefect .mid files because they all display that they contain 0kb when I click on "information". I never touched them or changed them. And I can also not just import them into Logic since they are empty. They were always in this "Midi Chord Progressions" folder and it occasionally got moved from computer to computer. Unfortunately I neither have any backup of this folder nor any of the original LPX projects because sometimes I did not even save the LPX project files cause I just wanted to quickly export the progression that came to my mind to midi, so I just exported the .mid file out of Logic. I already tried using Disk Drill to look through all of my hard drives where there was a possibility to find them, but no success. I also talked to the apple/logic pro support on the phone for 1 hour but they also could not help me in the end.
The weird thing is, that the "Midi Chord Progressions" folder has a size of 18kb but all the files in there show 0kb, how can that be? Anyways I have not giving up so far because I really need those .mid files that I collected over the years and it would be heartbreaking if they just completely vanished. So if there's anyone who has an idea, comment or thought about this, please help me with recovering these files
Stay healthy everyone
