i was messing around with an old song a client recorded, when i was finished i put it in a new folder, in which only contains the .aup file, and the _data folder. When i try to open the aup, audacity tells me that there was an error importing, and i should use file > open to open .aup files, so i did; and i got the exact same message that there was an error importing, and i should use file > open to open. Ive tried everyone in the forums mostly, i really need help recovering this banger.
Please attach the AUP file to your reply so that we can examine it.
See here for how to attach a file to a forum post: https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/how-to-attach-files-to-forum-posts/24026/1

Unfortunately the AUP is corrupt.
In some text editors the AUP file will appear to be empty. In my software programmer’s editor, it looks like this:
The most likely cause of the corruption is if the computer went to sleep before the file was saved.
