Using Windows 7 X64
Audacity Version 2.1.3
Been using Audacity for close to 2 years, never had an issue like this.
Normally after a crash, Audacity will give the regular Missing Audio Data Block Files warning, and am able to reload the project before the crash. Worst case scenario, I’ll be able to revert back to a previously saved version and work back from there.
But today, I got about 3 minutes into editing a 2 hour file, experienced a crash while applying a mild Noise Gate.
After re opening got the error of "Missing Audio Data Block Files. Something I’ve seen before with no issues after crash.
Chose “Treat missing audio as silence”, Project opened, and the entire 2 hour Waveform is completely empty.
Keep in mind, Audio was saved as Audacity file after the initial recording, and was not saved by myself at any time in the 3 minutes up until the crash.
Shouldn’t the old version be saved?
Why has the crashed version replaced my entire file?
Thanks for your help.
