Missing audio files

HELP!
I am getting the following error messages when I try to open a recent project:
"Couldn't find the project data folder" followed by "could not load file (name).aup."

I have searched the forum, and I understand that this is probably happening because I inadvertently moved some files around.

I have located both the .aup project file AND its corresponding _data folder. The question is, how do I get these two to recognize each other??

That is the most likely explanation.

The _data folder must have its original name.
The .AUP file and the _data folder must be in the same directory (folder) as each other.
