I migrated Finale over to my new laptop (running Windows 10) a few weeks ago, but at the time didn't have my serial number handy to fully authorize it and it let me proceed anyway.  Well, today I tried to save a (not trivial) score I was working on, and it wouldn't save because Finale wasn't fully authorized with my serial number, but in order to do that, I had to exit Finale and open it again as an Administrator.  Authorization proceeded smoothly, but then my file had disappeared.  Is it recoverable at all???  Please, pretty please???

Check to see if there is a bak file. But if you were beyond the 30-day trial period, I doubt it.

Do you back up your files? If so, check there.

I FOUND a .bakx file!  Now how do I recover it?  Through Finale? Or something else?

If you can not open the .bakx backup directly with Finale, try changing the file name extension from .bakx to .musx.
