Aup file has been completely deleted. I still have .AU files


I upload a recorded audio file from a group of people on occasion. Recently I was given a folder containing only the .au files; there was no .aup file to be found. I am wondering if there’s any way of recovering from this.

Preferably I’m looking for options that don’t require trying to recover the .aup file.



The short answer is no. The AUP file is the Project Manager. It’s a text file which tells Audacity what to do with all those little AU files.

Sometimes if Audacity crashed on you, there are ways to recover the show.

Not if the show comes pre-crashed.
