Opening hundreds of .au files

Hi, I use 1.2.5 and I was just recording a 60 minute podcast and noticed about 40 mins in that audacity crashed. I had to force quit and afterwards I looked in the /tmp/ folder to find about 820 .au files but NO .aup file. Is there any way to get these files to open in a sequence without having to individually stitch them together? Can I just create an .aup file and somehow link the two together?


Is there any particular reason you want/need to use 1.2.5 - it’s absolutely ancient now - the latest version is 2.0.6 which you can get from here: Audacity ® | Downloads


Just to add that given you were using that obsolete 1.2 version, there is no need to time sort and rename those AU files as indicated in the above. The files are already named sequentially.
