How Do I Recover iMovie Project?

“I was editing a project that included voice recordings thru the computer microphone and adding titles to describe the audio. My imovie program crashed/unexpectedly quit. When I restarted imovie ALL the data was lost. It looks like a brand new project. How can I recover the data? The originals have been destroyed.”

Thanks to iMovie, Mac OS, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch users can edit their own home movies. However, something unexpected may happen and we may lose iMovie projects due to accidently deletion or iMovie crash/errors. Some users also reported that their iMovie files disappeared after Mac 10.12/10.11/10.0 update.

The easiest way to retrieve deleted iMovie files on Mac is to restore them from Trash, no matter your project is under construction or it has been exported as a MP4 video. If you can locate the deleted iMovie clip in Trash Bin, please drag the file to iMovie projects folder in iMovie folder on Mac, and then open the project in iMovie application.

What if you cannot recover the lost iMovie project from Mac Trash Bin, or what if your iMovie files were lost on iPhone, iPad? There are other different ways to get iMovie lost files back on Mac or iOS devices.
