Occasionally, Logic Pro will have trouble finding audio files that were previously used within the project. Several reasons may cause this; you are not connected to a relevant hard drive, or you actually renamed your hard drive, you have stored the files in a different volume, or folder, or possibly moved them to another volume, you have actually renamed the files in the Finder. Or perhaps you renamed them in the audio bin of another project. Or maybe you deleted the files by accident.
In any of these situations, Logic Pro will prompt you with a dialog box similar to this one, Audio files not found, and it will give you the name of the audio files that are missing, starting with the first one, and a description of where it believes the audio file lives. You have several ways to respond to this dialog box. Click the Skip All button if you know that one or more audio files no longer exists or was renamed. Otherwise click the Skip button to individually manage each missing or renamed file.
Click the Search button to prompt a search in the current volume, and if that search is unsuccessful, Logic Pro will provide a File Not Found dialog. And finally, Locate, which is the choice we are going to choose in this movie. Click the Locate button to manually define where to search for each file. A dialog box containing the name of the audio file being searched for in the Title bar will appear on screen. Generally, when you locate the first audio file that's missing, it will automatically find the others if all the missing audio files are living in the same folder.
