Anton.....
You say "if EDIUS crashes due to a sudden power failure etc. a lock file will remain, this will also cause you issues, so be sure to delete the lock file while EDIUS is closed

You say "be sure Win Explorer view options are correct or you won't see the lock file and its extension
https://www.videoproductions.com.au/MR/view-options.png"

I followed your thumbnail win explorer view options recommendation. My problem is the only way this lock file shows up is when the Edius project IS open. When I close the Edius project the lock file associated with it disappears. When i try to delete the lock file with edius open edius says I can't delete it until I close the edius project.
Yesterday I had saved multiple copies of this project. Looking at them today they all appear to have that locked file associated with them. But I only can see them when the edius project is open. So I guess my question is how to see them with edius closed so I can delete the locked file.
Thanks for any help!!!

If the lock file doesn't exist then the project isn't in use by Edius, and you don't need to delete it.

as I mentioned, you only delete a lock file if it exists when EDIUS is closed
It always exists when EDIUS is open, but when EDIUS has a hard crash, it has no time to close the lock file and as such, you need to delete it

did you try save as and give the project a new name?

Anton and Thoff.....

You are my heroes. Clumsily following your messages, I was able to get this job up and out the door.
Yes Anton, I saved project under a new name.
And Thoff, due to your reply about the lock file, I mustered up the courage to proceed.


Very grateful for all the help. I need a drink.

Lori

For Anton answer and the other user... Evolution do not mean necessarily progress.

I am 67 years and use computers and programs since the "CPM" and "MSDOS".

Today I am still impressed by the progress of windows and have respect for the designers of programs such as Edius. I just regret that some aspects of "upgrades", especially layouts, are not helpful and complicate the user life.

Unfortunately I started to use computers in the windows 3.1 time age, I'm a mouse pilot :)

I'm miss all the msdos knowledge, that's a shame, at least that how I feel now, I'm kinda allergic to command line instructions.

Time has indeed gone fast and technology even faster, it's almost a full day job to keep up with everything.

Good luck with all the upcoming changes that's gonna surprise us...

And speed the graying of hair!

MS DOS was about getting work done using productivity apps.

Windows is about entertaining the user.

I recall the trade magazine "Value Added Reseller" touted the introduction of Win 95 as a boon to the industry because with Win 95 the PC had truly become too complex for users to setup/manage/maintain, and hardware upgrades would be required.

And it was Bill Gates who said, back in the 1980s, something to the effect of: "Why would anyone ever need more than 640k of RAM?"

I am 77 and did Mathematics in University and remember in the late 1950's us getting one of the first 8bit tape based computers in the department. When I worked for Rolls Rovce in Derby in mid 1960's we sent tape stacks down to the Univac center in London overnight. Things were so expensive we programmed restart times to cover for faults and use of paper etc so that we could restart and not go back to the beginning of the simulation run. Emigrated to Canada in 1970 and wonder now as the computers in my little studio must be several times more powerful as all the computers the company had then. The main IBM took almost a floor of the building and had less memory by a long way( I don't think people could comprehend a terabyte of memory then ) and certainly was not as powerful as my Threadripper.

In late 1970's as senior manager of a few departments of engineers I decided that I really needed to set my self on a re education trip and got the IT department to teach me how to put a PC together and learned DOS. Not really difficult as I had already programmed in several other languages. I have kept this up making all my PC's since then. Keeps the brain active !! Combination of video and computers is a nice mix of art and technology.

Yes, the good ole days when a meg of ram cost $1000. Still have 3 old Amigas, two with Toasters, from that era-- must say though it did a hell of good job with a meg of ram or two. 'Bout time I booted one of them to see if they still work!
