Mac Os Sierra version 10.12.6

My computer died when I was recording a podcast and the auto recovery is not working. Just looking for some concise steps to get my recording back. Thanks

Automatic recovery is very good in modern versions of Audacity, which means that if it fails, the chance of recovery by any other means is poor.

In what way? What exactly happened?

That IS layman's terms. If you can't recover the project, then I'd suggest that you assume that the project cannot be recovered. (I've never successfully recovered a project that automatic recovery failed to recover).
