Re: error code then all files are lost

Hello @badorourke. GoPro Studio has long been retired that is why you are only able to download and install Quik for desktop. What is the brand, capacity and classification of the SD Cards that you have tested? Also, which camera models do you have? We would also like to know what specific error code or strange files you got so we have a better understanding of what is going on. A screenshot will be very helpful. 


If you have not done it yet, try un-installing, then re-installing Quik. You can download it anew from here . Let us know how it goes.
