Lost my source files moving Articulate Storyline 2 from old to new PC

Hi all

My PC was upgraded at work and I moved my Storyline 2 over from my old PC over to new PC. I copied over the Articulate files over but it appears to not carry over the source files only the output ones.

Does anyone know how Storyline 2 manages the source files  - where do they normally default to and what is the extension?

Thanks in advance

Hey there, Alex.  The default saving location for your Articulate projects is in your user profile of the C: drive, in Documents > My Articulate Projects.

If you've changed that when saving a file, or if you've worked a file from your Downloads folder, it might have saved to another location.

I like to use my File Explorer search on the entire C: drive to look for *.story files if I'm in a pinch.

I hope that helps you locate your projects!

Hey thanks again Crystal I managed to get back all my old source files - phew!

My work computer split the files (weird huh!) between my C:drive and the network drive which meant I couldn't see  them.

The lesson I learnt was to back up, back up and back all your source files onto an external drive.

Thanks for your help!
