Default Lost project

I recorded a demo using PT First on an old laptop (not my ProTools rig, see my sig block)....

I uninstalled PT First on the old laptop. I see on my iLok that the install is still registered to me. I'm wondering if I reinstall PT First on that old laptop if I will be able to see my project that was stored up in the cloud? There is a a few parts of that demo that I'd like to get. If not, it's not a big loss, I can just re-perform them.

Thanks in advance!

If you didn’t delete the project from the cloud, it’ll still be there wherever you log into your cloud account. You can install PT First back on the old laptop or on anything else for that matter as long as the OS is still compatible with it.

But wait! There's MORE

Many new users mistakenly refer to any recording as a "project". Pro Tools uses this term in a different way. With PT, a "project" is a recording that lives in the cloud. A "session" is a recording that lives on your local hard drive. Knowing that, does that change anything? In any case, to retrieve your recording, you need to be able to access it. If its on your local drive, then its easy as your iMac can simply open it. If its in the cloud, you just need your login info to access your cloud storage for your free(first 3)projects.
