Using Audacity on a Windows 11 64bit machine. Any time I open Audacity I am prompted with two projects to recover. Any selection I make (recover, delete) causes the application to stop responding and I am left with a spinning wheel of death. The application never responds. I have reinstalled Audacity multiple times but am unable to get past this screen.
Even prior to this however, the latest version of Audacity had been crashing on me during simple and routine activities (trimming audio segments, zooming in, applying an equalizer profile). In these instances the app would stop responding for around 30-45 seconds before moving forward with the task.
The files I edit are podcast voice files with two tracks at around 45minutes long at the longest. However, this performance issue occurs on even the smallest of my files.
The biggest problem at this point though is that Audacity is completely inaccessible to me. Because I can’t get past this recovery prompt.
