Constantly crashes when saving

I’m using Audacity to record vocal voiceovers of between 60secs and 5 minutes. regardless of the length, EVERY time i try to save the recording the whole program crashes. EVERY TIME. Occasionally it decides to save it. Then when I try to export, it crashes again. I’m not doing anything complex. I’m so annoyed since it’s wasting me literally hours.
Is this fixable? If not, it will be goodbye to Audacity i’m afraid :cry: :cry: :imp:
Can anyone help.

Which three-number version of Audacity are you using?

Try exporting and saving to your desktop if you’re not already.

Has it ever worked?

Which microphone are you using?

Did you get your Audacity from here?
