Audacity doesn’t handle well large files when:
- saving a project as another project
- copying and pasting tracks
- closing a project
Every time I do that, it freezes (NOT RESPONDING) and/or creates significant time lags (15 sec - 1 min and longer), for example between closing the project and Audacity starting to compact it. Often it will freeze few times in the process.
Today it even created an error in closing the project (unhandled exception ? - or something similar, I didn’t write down the words), giving me three options to proceed without explaining the consequences of those options, so I chose blindly hoping for the best.
I can’t go back to that project, as I have been frantically dealing with several versions of it in the past 30 minutes and don’t recall which one was it, with confusion resulting from the lack of the lossless backup (raised in another post - as the current backups are useless) while until now I believed that I DO have a lossless copy of my project, and inability to remove echo from an already closed and opened project - please include this critical information in your manual!. I need to find the version of my project with the final edits and without the echo - it looks that I can’t.
several compounding issues with lots of extra work and time.
could you please advise.
