If the project is a raw capture, particularly mono, then there is the possibility of rescue via the time and date stamps.

Editing scrambles the work inside the _DATA folder. Without the AUP file, there's no way to unscramble it.

I will just have to learn from this and move on. Make something better. It was several multitracks.

Multi-track is rough. You can't use the common recommendation to export everything as backup WAV files. You could be there all week. You could Export a WAV of each track just after you perform it, and then go on to editing and production.

As you produce the show, Save Audacity Projects at time intervals under different names so Audacity doesn't try to keep stepping on and correcting one three-week old project.

You should know Audacity Projects do not save UNDO, so that's an important reason to have all the backup WAVs of each live performance.
