Hello Audacity friends,
I was using cut & paste (ctrl-X, ctrl-V) to remove sections from one project and paste them into new ones, thereby splitting a large project into smaller pieces. Unfortunately I cut & pasted a large section (3 hours) that seemed to hang my computer, so I tried to quit Audacity. Then Audacity detected a crash, and in its auto-recovery, it removed those 3 hours from my project. But those 3 hours never made it anywhere else, so I have lost 3 hours of recording. I am not optimistic, but is there a way to roll back to the project file as I actually saved it (right before I cut the 3 hours and attempted to paste them elsewhere).
I am using Audacity 3.0.2 which I installed using PPA on my Ubuntu 18.04.6 LTS machine.
