Hey people. Will try and explain the steps I took and how I’m lost right now.
Was recording a session called “Goosebuds8”. Halfway through I stopped recording for a moment, saved file, and then saved as a new project called “Goosebuds8p2”. Recorded, saved. Closed computer. Now when I try to reopen the files I can only open “p2”, which plays perfectly. When I try to open the first Audacity project file I get:
“Error Opening Project
Couldn’t find the project data folder: “goosebuds8_data””
"Error Opening Project
Could not load file: “/Users/chadquandt/Documents/goosebuds8.aup”
So what happened? Did I accidentally overwrite the first project when I saved as the second? In my Documents folder I have
So no folder for the first file. Is it gone? Did it get combined in the folder for p2? I’ve tried sorting through the actual data folder but it’s hundreds of AU audio parts that play individually, but I can’t tell where they go. It’d be a monstrous puzzle piece game to try and even see if they’re part of the original recording.
I also tried copying the p2 folder, renaming it as “goosebuds8_data” to try and trick the program to seeing if the original recording was in there, but after ignoring the “orphan files”, it just opened successfully with no audio.
Any help? Am I doomed? Thanks in advance.
