    Salvaging MC v10 (circa 2001) Edit lists and timeline

    Hi All

    I have salvaged files from old AVID disks (circa 2001 on MC 10). I am trying to recuperate an edit list or an actual timeline. I even have files from a ZIP drive.

    All I have are exec files that my current MC will not recognize. At the time I may have edited on win NT. I am now OS High Sierra. 

    Is there a way to recuperate anything?

    Thanks for your input.

    UPDATE: I just checked on a pc and I confirm that the files are window files : Is there a way to salvage these files and convert them to mac os files?

    Exec files are the actual application or the installers.

    You should still ave Avid bins. .avb files. Thats what you need.

    Thanks for your reply.

    The files I see with mac os use the "exec" icon. Under Windows there are no extensions. I took a poor screen shot to show what I have using windows. Please note that I am using bootcamp to look at the files under window (with no MC to interpret the info).

    Cheers

    I can't attach the photo I'll try sending directly. (I do not think this matter concerns too many folk).

    Marco A:

    Sure there are.  Open any folder, go to the "view" tab and make sure the "File name extensions" box is checked.
