So I had a shoot over a year ago, imported the footage properly. At the time the client did not want any editing, now they are calling wanting me to edit. I can not find any of the files on our server and it appears everything is gone. I do see the thumbnails in XDCAM transfer, is there any way at all to bring back these files?? I know that the cards have been used again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
XDCAM Transfer creates thumbnails of any files you reference. Just because the thumbnails are present it does not mean that the video files are. Where are you backup files? IMHO a file is not saved on a hard drive until you have made two independent copies on two different drives or an independent copy on LTO tape, XDCAM disc or some other long term storage. It's far to easy to delete files on a hard drive.
