Either while recording or when trying to save a project tracks are automatically being deleted. They are even being deleted in the saved file.
When I try to reopen the file I get the following message…
“Project check of “xxxx” folder detected 22 missing audio data (.au) blockfiles probably due to a bug, system crash, or accidental deletion. There is no way to recover these files automatically. “
The log in part reads:
10:17:36: Loading avcodec from ‘’.
10:17:36: Error: Failed to load shared library ‘.dll’ (error 126: the specified module could not be found.)
10:17:36: Loading avformat from ‘avformat-55.dll’.

Which version of Audacity are you using? (look in: “Help menu > About Audacity”)
If you’re using Audacity 2.2.1, avoid using “File menu > Save Project As…” unless you are saving the project with a new name. (If you are just updating a project that has already been saved, use “File menu > Save Project” or “Ctrl + S”)
