Cant open aup files

I have some audacity projects which I recorded on the earlier 1.2.6 version. on a different computer. I saved the projects on a memory stick but when I try and open them It comes up ‘couldn’t find project data folder “name of project”_data’. Then comes up with could not load file. Is it impossible to open these files as they are some songs which I recorded and don’t want to lose them.

The AUP file and _data folder must be named the same, such as the file “song.aup” and the folder “song_data”.

The AUP file must go in the same folder that the _data folder of the same name is in.

The AUP file must not be inside the _data folder.

Please see for more information.


Thanks for your reply Gale. Much appreciated
