I’m using version 2.2.2.
I was editing audio and the laptop battery died. When I try to go back in to the project, I get the Automatic Crash Recovery window with the project, I select it, get the old Audacity did not recognize the file type and suggesting to try installing FFmpeg and importing raw data.
I am able to import it without FFmpeg, but I installed FFmpeg anyway. In the end with or without FFmpeg, I am experiencing the same problem: the audio comes up blank and like a fraction of a second long.
I had the audio saved in the standard two channel stereo, but also done to 32-bit float and 96000 Hz which is not typical. I change the encoding and sample rate to match what the audio was and I get the blank audio.
What do I do now to recover this autosave file?
I was into like tow hours of meticulous audio editing and it would be a nightmare scenario to have to do this all over again.
