Audio files will not play

When I go to the Audacity site and click on files, my files appear in a list, but when I try to play them I only get 6 seconds!!! Where is the rest of the recording?
Please help! I’ve recorded hours and hours of family audio tapes and can’t seem to access them. Ack!

Audacity ( ) does not host audio files. Please only obtain Audacity from .

If you want to play your recording in other applications on your computer, you have to File > Export… not save a project.

Reopen your project from File > Recent Files… then it will open complete and you can export it. Please see these links for more information: .
