Hi everyone.

For a month ago or so, I was going to uninstall a program from my PC with an uninstaller program which I have never had problem with before. When I uninstalled this program I noticed that basically everything from my "A" harddrive got deleted, including all my FL Studio projects which I had put thousands of hours into. The whole FL folder got deleted as well as all my plugins.

Luckily, I managed to recover every single file which I had on my harddrive and everything is the same as before. However, unfortunately, I can not open the majority of my own projects, but still I can open a few of them. There is a error message popping up when I can not load a project, it says "An error occurred while reading the FLP file. It may be corrupted, or some plugin caused an error while opening." I have tried a lot of things to fix this problem but without any success. I have tried several FLP recovery programs and such but still, without any success.

I have no idea why I can open a few of the projects but not all of them, what is causing this problem? And another thing to mention is the fact that I did a full computer format to start over, but I still have the damaged projects.

After many hours of searching I found this post someone made for a few years ago which can be a solution for this problem, but I have no idea how to HEX edit what so ever. So if anyone have any idea, I would appreciate it! http://ocremix.org/community/topic/3458 ... d-headers/ (http://ocremix.org/community/topic/3458-corrupt-fl-file-no-problem-only-for-damaged-headers/)

I literally can not imagine to start over with all my important projects again which I have been working on since 2013, I must find a way to fix this problem. Therefore I would highly appreciate any kind of help.

Thanks in advance!

You can try using the IL Diagnostic Tool to recover corrupt projects: http://forum.image-line.com/viewtopic.php?f=200&t=8771
