Try access the backup file

Make sure "Hidden File" is set to shown for your folder explorer

Local C drive > Users > USERS > Appdata > Local > VEGAS Pro > 18.0

This is my computer path, yours might be different.

 

But any latest edit will not shown in backup project as it save in certain timing/date

Good news guys! I found a way to open the project. All you need to do is rename that file "(project).veg.bak" to "(project).veg.veg", open it and Voilà! Thanks everyone for the support.

Finally!

 

For the future, it's best to do save-as regularly or File>Incremental Save after sometimes.
