Overwitten file?

I cut and pasted an “intro” to my podcast and then rendered it down (I had originally 3 different tracks). I closed the file and moved the computer to another room to edit the whole thing. I came back and there was only one thing on the track…the intro…the rest of my project was GONE.

I’ve read through older files that there “may” be a way to restore it (I was working on this file for 3 days and have no idea what happened). Please help. I’m afraid to touch anything. Thank you.

I closed the file

Did you turn Audacity off?

We need to wait for a senior elf. I don’t remember which step causes Audacity to flush its show files and its cache system.

Which version of Audacity do you have? Did you Save As and point to the existing show before you closed it?


This may or may not be relevant, depending on which version of Audacity you have: https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/important-bug-fix/48358/1
