Audacity crashes, and 380 files are gone

Hello !!

very first time on a forum for Audacity !!

I’ve been using Audacity for a while now, learning a lot with it, and I started quite a few very intense projects on it…
I am using the 2.3.0 version with windows 10, on my almost 10yo computer…

I’ve had a problem today with a project which has a bout 30 tracks.
I made sure I was saving every hours, but still got a message after a crash, saying that 380 files were missing.
3 options are offered to me :

  • close the project
    -replace missing audio with silences for this session
    -replace permanently the missing audio with silences

is there a way I can get everything back ??

I didn’t realize that you’d created a new topic. I wrote a reply to what you wrote under my topic, but I’m not sure if you’ll see it. I hope it will be of help to you.

Rather than writing it out again, just see https://forum.audacityteam.org/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=107708&start=10. It’s the last post at the end of the thread (and it’s pretty long).
