I opened up a saved folder Final Mix.aup and made some changes. I clicked on “Save Project” (not “Save project as”). When I closed the project and then re-opened it, I got the error message: “Couldn’t find the project folder: Final Mix_data”. This is my entire project!! How do I retrieve that folder?
I just found a response in your forums to this question.
I did not move or delete any of my files so I do not understand why Audacity couldn’t find the project data folder. By the way, after I click on “ok” for error message saying it couldn’t find data folder, a second error message opens up: “could not load file Final Mix.aup”. I don’t know if this indicates a different problem from the first error message.
What is the name of the .AUP file?
What is the name of the _data folder?
Open the .AUP file in NotePad and copy the first 5 lines and paste them into your reply. (Do not edit the file in any way - do not save the file while open in Notepad, just copy the first few lines and paste into tour reply).
