Hi there. I’m sorry if this question has been asked over and over again. I have a couple of .aup files I haven’t opened for a couple of months. I’ve now come back to them and Audacity is telling me that it can’t find the project data folder. Is there a way of opening or recovering this file?
The audio data for an Audacity project is stored in a separated folder that is named with “_data” at the end. If you don’t have the project’s “_data” folder, then you have no audio.
