Cannot find exported .wav and .mp3 files in Finder.

This section is now closed.

Audacity 1.3.x is now obsolete. Please use the current Audacity 2.1.x version.

Mac 0S X 10.3 and earlier are no longer supported but you can download legacy versions of Audacity for those systems HERE.

Using Audacity 1.3.13-beta, I accidently exported wav and mp3 files to a default folder, also containing the .xml files with metadata and a folder named Autosave. I cannot find this default folder in MacOS X Finder, neither by navigating the folders nor by searching for them. Where are my files? I see them when trying to export a new file, but not in Finder.

If you're on Snow Leopard, the Library folder is hidden. I think you can get there from the Go menus.

Go > Go To Folder > /Users/koz/Library
Put your user name in there instead of koz.

That should give you a listing containing Application Support and inside that audacity.

Thanks Koz
I found my files this way :)
I'm fairly new to OSX so I find it strange not being able to show hidden folders and files; I tried to find this first but without success.
