Recording_data folder suddenly missing

I saved a project, and then closed it, then reopened it again, but suddenly a message appear that said “Error Opening Project: Couldn’t find the project data folder: 008A_data” My project name is 008A - 008B, and then I scrolled up to look at the folder, but folder 008A_data is missing. Any help?

I don’t understand.

If your project name is 008A - 008B, then the AUP file should be 008A - 008B.aup and the folder should be 008A - 008B_data.

I wouldn’t put spaces in a filename myself, but I think that’s allowed.

Did you intentionally put the project in a specific place, or let Audacity decide where to put it? What happens if you use the search system to find the folder?
