When I open one of my projects in audacity (which was working fine an hour or so ago), the following error message appears:
“Warning - Missing Audio Data Block File(s)
Project check of “bb_questionsanswers_synced_data” folder detected 82 missing audio data (.au) blockfile(s) probably due to a bug, system crash, of accidental deletion. There is no way for Audacity to recover these missing files automatically.”
It then gives me 3 options:
a) close project immediately with no further changes
b) Treat Missing audio as silence (this session only)
c) Replace missing audio as silence (permanent immediately)
When I chose option a, the program just closes and the exact same thing appears when I reopen, when I chose option b, seconds of my audio disappear, and I haven’t tried option c, because I don’t want to lose my audio.
How do I fix this? When I click on the log to show details, the program just freezes. I’ve never moved these files or this project, it just lives on my external hard drive. I have Catalina and version 2.3.1 TIA!
