I am using Windows 10, using Audacity 2.3.0
First of all I already checked the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) in the Online User Manual. It advises to make sure I have the updated version. I do have the updated version while this problem occur.
To be honest I need help for 2 things. One is when I was editing my record. The second is this problem right now, I can’t open my project. So I think I have to let go of my problem while editing my record. Since, I can no longer open, my record. But I’d like to get back to that once this problem, hopefully, be solved.
Here’s what I’m trying to do. I am trying to open the project, that I have been working on, with my whole soul, but then I have this error messages. (please check attached images) It says on the error message, "couldn’t find the project data folder: “the Greats1_data” and there’s no other option but to click ok. So there’s nothing that I can do about it but click ok. Then another error came up, it solidified that the project that I was working on could not load. I have been working on to this project since yesterday. Earlier it loaded up. I did some editing. Then I think I just got my attention to something else, for just a few minutes, then I came back to my record, tried to listen to it, and there was no sound! So I saved the project, and closed. And tried to re open it, but this is the error that I am getting now. I don’t know why it happened. Actually, this was not the first time it happened. Just recently, I was trying to make this project record, the EXACT same thing happened to what I was doing. So this is very discouraging. To be very honest. Imagine you are giving your heart out to a record that you are trying to perfect, then all of the sudden it wouldn’t open, can you imaging how FRUSTRATING that is, given that it happened TWICE?
Sorry if I have to say it.
Can I still retrieve this file? If yes what must I do to retrieve it?
If I can’t retrieve it anymore, what must I do to avoid this from happening ever again?
would you consider me doing reinstalling the software?
would you consider me reformatting my laptop?
- If yes, If I do these things, are you gonna be sure that this issue will not going to happen again?
Now if you think I don’t have to do these things, and that there’s something you can do to have this project retrieve, please let me know.
And may you please give any ADVISE so it will not happen anymore ever again?
Thanks for reading.
