Can I please request help with the following issue? I spent a long time editing and got the following message today and almost had a heart attack.
I have rewritten the file, assuming that I everything will be ok but must have done something wrong. I made a back up on Google Drive but after downloading I get the same message. The file has 320 MB so there (hopefully) should be the content. Any advice would be highly appreciated. Thank you!
Yes. So most of these corrupt file issues are recoverable.
However, a 320MB .aup3 file is the same size as an empty Audacity project so it is highly unlikely there is any useful recoverable data contained within it. If your file were 320GB or 3.2GB this might be worthwhile to persue.
Yes, downloaded OK, Unblocked it, It opens perfectly in 3.3.1 on windows 11, Host Windows DirectSound, It is 312 MB, 27 minites long, 1 mono track. It is a discussion about going to university.
It opens at 48000 rate.
Tommen, I profusely apologize. For some reason I had a brain fart and got my MB and GB going sideways. In fact, the size of an empty .aup3 file database is 320 KB, which, if had taken the time to reconfirm, I wouldn’t have gotten confused with your 320 MB file.
I had been repairing broken and corrupt .aup3 project databases for a while, but as I am a only a lowly volunteer, and I have other another life to live on the side, I have reluctantly given this up.
Audy, thank you fixing up Tommen’s project. As other uses with corrupt files come along, I’ll steer them in your direction.
Thank you for trying!
However, I still get the same error message. Can you please advise me on if/what I can do to get it? Or would that be possible for you to reupload and share with me, please?
I can’t believe it! I’m pretty sure I’ve done everything like before (a few times) but suddenly it’s working now! That’s great. Thank you for all your advice and time, really appreciate it @jademan too, thanks and have a great day
