Ardour Missing fileswhen backing up
Hi DanielThank you for the info.I'll check these out now.I note that copy to session is indeed ticked, I didn't realise you can import to the regions, Nice one!
As I'm using a small SSD ( 30 Gig) I tend to use the larger IDE drive. It's my understanding that it's better to split the OS drive and the data.
On checking now it would seem that the drums files are in the session.I'll try the backups on my external drive.
Will let you know.CheersBob

Is there some permission error here?
That's worth checking, but it shouldn't affect only some of the tracks.
or does ardour not actually move the file into it's own folder and somehow link to the original file now on my desktop?
That's an option whenever you import audio material into an Ardour session. See the checkbox 'Copy files to session' here:
As you can see bit of *show stopper having 10 tracks with no drums.
I'd recommend taking a look inside the session directory on the original *machine to make sure the drum track .wavs are actually there. If not, inspect the Source tags of the .ardour session file in your text editor of choice to see which path they were linked from. E.g. for files in the session directory:
* *<Source name="Audio 1-1%L.wav" id="145" captured-for="" 1" flags="" channel="0"/>
* *<Source name="Audio 1-1%R.wav" id="147" captured-for="" 1" flags="" channel="0"/>
