Hi, I am making videos with imovie, I was recording a game but then it stopped because my disk space was full. I checked my storage space and all of my movies, music, etc. was gone, it was all other. I deleted a lot of movies and recordings I thought I would never use again. I made sure I kept ones I wanted but I deleted the ones that were already in iMovie. I thought that because they were in imovie it would still work. I got on iMovie about an hour later and I imported something from my event to my project, then I went to upload to youtube. It was all working but when I cancelled the youtube uploading, the project and everything in it said source clip is missing but it was all still in my events. I quit iMovie and opened it again and this time all of my events were empty, and all my project clips had a yellow triangle on them and it still said source clip is missing. Now, I had iMovie OPEN when I deleted all those movies, and didnt close it since, so maybe the events didn't delete until I quit it. I don't know though. Is there ANYWAY I can get those clips back!!!!!!!!!!! Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
