I’m new to Audacity and I’m afraid I just did something quite stupid I exported several recordings as MP3s, but when I attempted to play them back, to my surprise, nothing was there. Woops! Guess I should have saved them in Audacity first, huh? Anyway…then I got the following message:
“Audacity found temporary files that were not deleted or saved the last time you used Audacity. Audacity can’t recover them automatically, but if you choose not to delete them, you can recover them manually”. Then, “Delete temporary files? Yes/No”, to which I responded, “No”.
I don’t know if these temporary files are the recordings that didn’t export as MP3s or not, but it’s worth a try, I suppose, trying to recover them just in case. Only question is, how? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
Hmm…can’t figure this out at all. Experimented with Audacity by recording something, doing a “save as” (to create an .aup), then exporting as an MP3. And guess what, the MP3 had nothing in it! Then I did another recording and exported as an MP3 without first saving as an .aup & guess what? This time, it worked & the MP3 had something in it! Anyone know what’s going on here?
