Easy there man, nothing is messed up with the file format. Here is how I understand it - someone else who understands it better than me should chime in to clarify or correct.

 

Space Designer accesses two different types of files to work. There are .pst files, that saves preset data for a Space Designer setting, which includes EQ and all of the tweaks you can do in Space Designer to change the sound of the reverb. And then there are .SDIR files that are the actual Impulse Response, the files that actually contain the reverb logarithm.

 

 

For example, Space Designer may use the same impulse response for several different presets. Say you have three presets called Cathedral, Dark Cathedral, and Bright Cathedral. They may all access the same .SDIR called Generic Cathedral, and then EQ and other settings are tweaked in Space Designer to change the sound, which is saved as a preset that SD loads.

 

 

If you're missing SDIR files, then that's a problem. But they have nothing to do with the PST files.
