I just completed the translation of it, created the return package, sent it and then removed the project from the project list. But when I opened this package I forgot to create my own folder and save it according to my own organized folder structure.

Now I'd like to name this project (couldn't do it beforehand before I had opened the package and viewed the contents), and change the automatic labelling that was created when I opened the package. But I can't find the original project where it was saved. Any ideas how to find it? I tried Windows AppData etc. but could not find anything.

Try searching all project files on your machine Mar 30, 2016

Try searching all project files on your machine (*.sdlproj) and then sort them by modified date.

Removing a project from the list does not remove the project folder Mar 30, 2016


If you remove a project from your project list in Studio, it only gets removed in the list, but the project folder is still there. This means that you can easily recover your project using the command "Open Project" and navigating to the project folder of this project.
