Deleting project removes wrong project

I was trying out some stuff on teh marketplace and tried the “scifi hallway”, I added it to my project and it created a project in the launcher, i clicked on the scifi hallway project and deleted it. This then deleted the project I added it to as well as the scifi hallway project.

Hi Botanicvelious,

I attempted to reproduce this behavior but I couldn’t get your results. You are talking about the free Epic created Scifi Hallway content, correct?

Also, just to make sure I’m getting this right. After adding it to an existing project, you are only deleting the Vault content?

Ok so i have my project, lets call it project x

I download the epic scifi hallway

I rt click and “add to project”

I noticed it created a ue project inside the project x folder as well as added the scifi hallway project to my launcher

I then rt click on the scifi hallway and click delete, when it asks about deleting content i click yes.

both projects go poof.

I just tested this again, here are my steps:

  1. I added the ScifiHallway content to my project (no additional project was created, it was just added to the files in my existing project).

  2. I then deleted the ScifiHallway from the Vault content and my project wasn’t effected.

Are you using the 4.7 version of ScifiHallway with the 4.7 version of the engine?

Hi Botanicvelious,

We haven’t heard back from you in a few days, so we are marking this post as resolved for tracking purposes. If you’re still experiencing this issue, please feel free to post back here with additional information.



This literally just happened to me and all my backups are gone too deleted the marketplace ‘Scifi Hallway’ from the launcher and poof my main project plus 3 clones of those projects all gone at the same time seemingly unrecoverable Recycle Bin empty. Several months of progress lost as the backups got deleted at the same time. Btw Engine version 4.22.3
