Relocate Projects

Learn how to relocate Filmora projects.

Once you change the location of the source files, rename them, delete them, or disconnect the external drive where they are saved, Filmora will not be able to find them anymore through the saved path.

Step 1

If you click the changed save location or deleted project file from Project File, the window will prompt you that project does not exist in the saved location.
