Help pro tools lost tracks!!!!

Hi, Just brought a session back, and opened it up and two songs have tracks missing! i don't mean the audio files I mean the actual tracks just aren't there. maybe 15 tracks missing, in both cases tracks from the bottom of the edit page. The same in all save as generations of which there are quite a few and the same in the session backups of which there are 20, so its not human error. Also I have the bounces taken just before the sessions were closed which have the missing parts on them. Anyone heard of this or have any suggestions? totally screwed. all the audio is still in the audio folder just no tracks.
This was tracked in pro tools 8, and I then opened it in 9 and then 7. Same thing.

That just happened to me the other day...they ended up getting saved in a completely different folder. Had you just filled/changed HD's?

oh dear, im not very clever. just realised what i gone and done. Not used to non HD and didn't realise that after 128 tracks they just don't enter the session. so all i had to do was dump hidden inactive tracks and re-import tracks from the old session file, silly me.
