Can't move a project file

    I’m relatively new to Soundbridge. I currently have only two projects. One of them can open no matter where I put it, but the other can’t seem to open anywhere except the desktop and certain select folders. When I open the latter track anywhere except those select locations, Soundbridge crashes (or loads nothing). All I want to do is move the project file to a new folder to keep things organized.

    I have tried duplicating the project; same issue.
    I have tried making it the default project and saving it as a new project; same issue.
    I have tried opening it several different ways through Soundbridge; same issue.

    If anyone could help me out here I would appreciate it.


    After some playing around with other project files and moving them to different locations, it appears that Soundbridge doesn’t like projects being tucked away in specific folders. As far as I can tell, both the desktop and documents folders will work just fine. A little irritating that they can’t seem to go anywhere else, but it is workable.

    I’d be interested to know if anyone has a solution for keeping projects in their own designated folders, while still being able to relocate projects to different folders if necessary.


    You should be able to move projects to any folder on any hard drive.

    One specific thing that could cause problems that is know is:

    If any of the folders in the path to where the project is has any special characters (like cyrillic letters or such) that could be a problem.

    Is that the case maybe?


    Hey, thanks for replying.

    No, my projects only contain regular letters (both lowercase and uppercase), numbers and certain symbols (e.g. #’s). I tested this issue with a project simply named “j” and still got the same result.

    However, it may be that Soundbridge is using the first save location as the directory for the project. I typically save projects to my desktop first, then once they are finished I move them to their respective folders.

    Perhaps the solution would be to save the project directly into the folder I’m wanting to keep it in (although this may end up being cumbersome, and still wouldn’t solve the issue of not being able to move it to another folder if necessary)



    I didn’t mean the name of the project, but every folder and subfolder leading to it.


    Every folder and subfolder leading to the project also contains only standard letters and symbols.

    Some more experimentation may be necessary.
