XMP File Recovery

What is a .XMP file?

An XMP file is a metadata file used by Adobe programs such as Photoshop and Bridge. It contains the edits made to a camera raw file, such as a .CR2 or .NEF file, and is automatically generated and saved in the same directory as the corresponding camera raw file. XMP files include various properties of an image file, such as a description, title, keywords, author, copyright, brightness, exposure, contrast, crop angle, shadow, saturation, sharpness, tint, and temperature.

How to recover lost .XMP files?

Sometimes while working with a computer, laptop or other stationary or mobile devices, you may encounter various bugs, freezes, hardware or software failures, even in spite of regular updates and junk cleaning. As a result, an important .XMP file may be deleted.

By no means should you think that the only way to recover a .XMP file is always to create it once more.

Use programs for recovering .XMP files if a file was lost after accidental or deliberate deleting, formatting the memory card or the internal storage, cleaning the storage device, after a virus attack or a system failure.

    Hi,
    I have a Premiere pro project which is large and has recently started freezing while saving. It will pause part way through the save, then my RAM goes beyond my 32GB to 110GB (obviously paging), and then eventually after 3 or 4 minutes, completes the save. If I save again, it saves fine. If I do some changes, after about 5 minutes it will suddenly take a long time to save.
    If there is no media attached, this issue doesn’t seem to occur no matter what changes are made to the project.
    This makes me wonder if there is a faulty XMP file lying round somewhere…
    Have you encountered this ever before?
    Is there a macOS app to go through and repair amp files to solve this problem (if in fact it is the XMPs).
    Any tips or help would be gratefully appreciated – if you have time, of course.
    Thanks very much,
    Jonno
