Long time Audacity user, first time caller.
Audacity crashed- didn’t recover anything- and filled a track with Silence
I was working away in Audacity. I had two aup files open. (Let’s call it) File A had multiple tracks and lots of data; the other, File B, had next to nothing, and wasn’t important. Audacity froze- I clicked crtl+S hoping to save before the crash- and then Audacity quit on me.
When I reopened Audacity, I was offered recovery only for the small aup File B that I don’t care about. So I found and reopened File A on my own, and POOF! The top track (with ALL THE IMPORTANT STUFF) was turned to silence.
Then I backed up everything I could think of. 1) I saved the temp files from Audacity, BUT the files were only for File B (unimportant). 2) I saved File A’s “data” folder before I go messing around trying to scavenge for something useful.
*Yes, I should have exported things as wav/mp3 before this happened to be safe (Not really simple for me. Too many simultaneous tracks/data.) But I didn’t do that.
So as far as I can tell, the fact that I tried to save royally messed things up. I don’t see a temp file/backup for File A (only B), and the only data I have is what was saved, which shows silence when opened. Any suggestions?
Thank you all
