Audacity Data Folder missing - perhaps not even saved

Hi everyone,

Looking for a bit of help. I have been using Audacity for a year now and any issue I have had I have found solutions for on this forum.

We made a live recording of a series of seminars. However looking back there isn’t any data folder for the first seminar. There is however an audacity file saved but no data file.

Using the forum and other helpsites I have looked through the audacity temp files, recycle bin etc etc, but there is nothing.

Any pointers? I’m beginning to suspect that it might not have saved a data folder at all rather than the folder going missing.


If there’s no data, then you have no show.
The data folder is always created automatically when a project is saved, and it is always named with the name of the project followed by “_data”.
