Repeated drop-outs in audacity

Hi all,

I know next to nothing about AV/technology in general and have only used Audacity in the past at the most rudimentary level. Never edited, never even compressed, just recorded and exported short files. Mad respect for people who can grasp this stuff and help others figure it out.

I set up audacity on my boss’ computer to record a presentation, which turned out to be over 5 hours long. Yikes. Starting about 11 minutes in, there are repeated drop outs, each ~15 seconds seconds long, recurring every other ~15 seconds. I’m wondering if there’s anyway to concisely recover the lost audio. Maybe make a new file or something?
