I have read about 15 posts regarding “opening audacity files” but still don’t have a solution.
When I hit OPEN, audacity does not go to a specific audacity folder. I have to search for MAUD and an audacity file appears as a .aup file. When I hit open, it reads an error that it CANNOT OPEN.
-I last used this file in May 2020. It’s a recording of my 100 year old great aunt so it is worth my efforts to recover.
-I do not believe the .aup file and the _data folder are in the “same location” (ie: they are not in the same folder)…could that be why and HOW do I “move” them to the same location?
I searched around and found the text edit file…there is data in there and it corresponds to the name of the file (it has projname=MAUD in there)
I was worried that updating Audacity might make the file from last year incompatible so I have NOT updated.
I am using Mojave Mac.
-I also have a bunch of files that end with .au. These open and I can play them but they are not in the right order and it would be a monumental task to put all these 20-30 second files together again.
Does anyone have some thoughts?
Thanks in advance for your help
I believe I have found it, yes…it end in _data.
When I click on it, it opens a file that called eff. When I click though that, some of the files have nothing in them (d00, for example), but most that I click have quite a number of .au files in them (d0a for example).
Each of these files will open in audacity but they are seconds of the interview. There are hundreds of them.
