Storyline publish file deleted files out of computer folder of same name
May 12, 2023
I have a project file on my computer titled "Project 1" (not the real project name, just for example purposes). When I published the Storyline file for the LMS, I did not get a warning that there was already a folder with the same name on my computer that would have given me any indication there was a problem. However, when I went to the "Project 1" folder on my computer, most of my files are missing from that folder and have been replaced with the LMS output files, despite the fact that the files were categorized in folders with names different from the output files.
I've worked in Storyline for 10 years and have never had this happen. When I try to revert to a previous version of the folder, it says there are no previous versions.
Has anyone had this happen, and if so, did you find a way to recover the lost files???
