If you have any doubts at any stage understanding what I am suggesting you do - STOP and post a clarification question. It seems that we do have some data and we may still be able to recover it.
Was the e00 folder sitting under a folder with a name that ended "_data" (without the double quotes)? If it was, let's say it was called MYTune_data, then make a copy of it called Saved_MYTune_data. Next make a copy of the aup file (calling that Saved_currentname.aup - where currentname is whatever you called it when you saved it). Got that so far?
Now, rename your original copy of the aup file to, in my example, MYTune.aup. You should now have two aup files and two "_data" folders.
If you are still with me at this point things are still going good! Next question: Are the MYTune.aup file and the MYTune_data folder both sitting in the same parent folder whatever that may be (root, desktop, whatever whereever)? Are they both in the same place? If yes, try double clicking the aup file and see what happens. Report back whatever the outcome.

I clicked on "choose" (right now it reads: /var/folders/Vd/VdeZ0WYSF-8XjFkXtQ3w8++++TI/-Tmp-/audacity-avihistory ) and it was there. However, now when i go there, it's blank. Yesterday I had tried to name it & save it and it's residing as a folder (labeled "mayim2_data") on my desktop. When I click on the folder, it takes me to finder and the e00 folder is there to open. I made copies of both "mayim2_data" and "e00" (is that the aup file?) and did as you said and.... nothing It's still the 0.0 flatline when I open it.
