PtApp_AudioFileMgr.cpp error
Hi, today I got this message while trying to open a Session:

Could not complete your request because Assertion in "/Volumes/Development/223020/ProTools/App/PtApp/PtApp_AudioFileMgr.cpp", line 1985.

The session opened fine a couple hours earlier for checking something. I quit it without saving.

Other sessions open fine.

Backups of the problematic session show the error also, up to a date (2 days earlier) when it opens.

Restarted the system, etc.. same behaviour.

What does this mean?

I'm on a mac Pro 12.8 ultimate using native thunderbolt
Any suggestion?

This is extremely unlikely to be related to any of that.


Looks like a garden variety session corruption.

Either roll back to the version that works.

- or -

Working on a copy of your current session (copy from the OS) try identifying what media file is corrupted or causing problems and just replace that file in the session with an older version or try deleting it and recreating that one file content if needed. Can you play that file in the browser/OS? (I'm guessing its' corruption in a single file but might be more, might be missing files or directories or the session file itself corrupted etc. Try replacing files and see).


Try an import into a new session. that might work or might fail at some point and provide a clue.

Do maintenance! I've seen a very similar error and deleting Workspaces cleared it up:
