HELPPPP Entire project deleted because I clicked "skip all clips" when opening project

I was rearranging the folders in my computer and I moved all my converted ".mov" clips to a different folder. I opened an old important project and goprostudios prompted me to a "choose file" mac window. I was thoroughly confused because usually the project just opens, so I clicked option->skip all clips->open and gopro studios opened without all my edited clips! I freaked out and closed the window but Mac auto saves everything. I put the .mov clips back to the original pathway (cause I figured that what the problem was), but it was too late, everything is gone now! Is there any way of getting my clips back in the right order?

The exact same thing just happened to me...!! Did you figure out how to recover the project?! : (

Thanks!!!!!!

I think it's a lost cause :( It's because I moved the clip origins to a different folder so gopro couldn't find it. Once you click "skip all", your entire project is messed up. The thing about apple too is it saves the go pro project even if you panic close. Let me know if you find a solution

... :( That's what I was afraid of...  I've been trying for a while but there's no way I can make my project recover the clips with all their edits and splits. I can import them again, but having the original versions from the gopro is like starting from scratch... 

 

The worst part is that I still don't know why it lost the path to the clips in the first place, I didn't move them around! Next time I will save the resulting video before closing GoPro Studio.

 

Thanks anyway!!!!
