I have had an issue occur for the 3rd time, which requires a system image to be reloaded onto my system drive in order for everything to work as normal again.
For no apparent reason, when I shutdown and restart my system, it appears that BMT opens for the first time. All midi and serial ports become disassociated with themselves and any aliases, and with the size of my project file, proves to be difficult to re-establish. Originally, my file auto loads on startup and the splash screen is disabled. You'll see this is not the case once this problem occurs.
I am wondering if this has happened to anyone or if it is a known problem.
