Corrupted file - HELP

My computer gave a problem and corrupted the Project file.
Luckily I managed to recover the * .au files, but the problem is that I can not merge the files since they are over 5000.

Is there any way to create a new project to read the junatr’s 5000 .AU’s in then export to MP3

There is some [u]recovery information[/u] in the user manual that might help.

For future reference, it’s a good idea to make WAV file backups whether you make an Audacity project or not. Since a WAV is one file (or maybe you have a few WAV files) they are less likely to get fouled-up and you can move them around safely, etc. Then depending on how critical or how irreplaceable the file are you can keep multiple backups on multiple drives in multiple locations, etc.
