Audacity Shuts Down

I have the latest version of Audacity. This morning when trying to modify audio which I had captured from my turntable. When I went to increase the volume of the file, Audacity deleted the file. I tried a 2nd time but saved the file to my hard drive. I tried a second time to modify the file, Audacity cleared the file again.

What can I do to resolve this problem?

Thanks;

That and nobody is going to write you back.

So Audacity didn’t crash or shut down. It keeps running, but the timeline goes blank or flat-line? If that’s not it, I didn’t understand completely.

If you’re exporting work, are you following good filename practices? No punctuation marks or non-ISO dates, etc?

You can drive Audacity and Windows nuts by putting a date in the filename. Slash marks have special meaning.
