I need help with my latest Audacity project

I am currently running Audacity “2.0.1”.

I had a song recorded, I saved and closed my laptop. Screen froze when I opened it an hour later. Now when I try and open the .aup file it gives me a unknown file type error. I have the .aup file, and data files all there untouched. What could be going wrong?

Restart the machine. You may be trying to use a partially damaged Audacity. It will be interesting to see if Audacity restarts after the machine comes back up.

Oh, we need the Windows version.


Attach the AUP file if you still cannot open it. Please see here for how to attach files: https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/how-to-attach-files-to-forum-posts/24026/1

Audacity 2.0.1 is old now. I suggest you obtain the latest 2.1.0 from http://web.audacityteam.org/download.
