Hi guys, new to the forum, but long time user of audacity.
version 2.0.2, using Windows 7
problem: crashed after recording a 60-minute audio (spoken word only).
I have tried to reconstruct my file from the data, but audacity recovery utility won’t returns an error.
Tried to reconstruct the file manually TWICE, using a very long session of cut and paste, but the sectors are mixed up.
The first time I did this manually, I sorted the data sectors by ‘filename’ from within Windows file manager, hoping that the filenames would be in proper order. They are mixed up.
The second time, I sorted the files by ‘date modified’, but the are still mixed up.
I just tried to sort them by ‘date created’, but there are a number of the sectors that are created within each ‘minute’, so they are not being sorted by the ‘second’, ie each minute’s sectors are going to be mixed up.
Any suggestions for solving this would REALLY help, as the audio content was very valuable, and I would not want to have to re-record the audio.
It makes me NOT want to use Audacity for the initial recording, because of its love of crashing on Windows 7.
Thanks very much for all your help, Jerry K
