dear audacity help,
i use a imac computer system 10.7.5 and audacity version 188.8.131.52.
when attempting to open an audacity file i saved which i did not move or change its original name
i receive this message: " couldn’t find the project data folder",
as well as: “could not load the file”.
i have read through many of your forum help suggestions.
i understand that if the .aup and _data files are moved or renamed audacity will not locate and open the .aup file.
i have tryed placing the .aup and _data files together in the same folder,
side by side on my desk top,
as well as downloading the original files from my crashplan back up
from the file creation date ( thursday 12 february 2015 ) and this file failed to open as well.
i also tried to import the contents / items inside the individual _data folders which resulted in a
mass audacity file pile up of mono sound parts one beneath the other
or as individual sound parts and silence parts each on separate audacity windows.
i managed to select and playback a sound piece, hoping to organize and join the sound pieces together,
however the playback was jumbled noise.
i recall reading and unable to relocate a forum suggestion to trash
an item in the preferences-library or something similar to that.
this recorded file is vital to me, any new helpful suggestions would be excellent.
thank you for your amazing volunteer assistance.
