Hi all and thanks in advance to whoever reads this –
I recorded an episode of our company’s podcast yesterday evening. We finished recording, I saved the project file to my desktop, and then proceeded to listen to the episode back. Everything was there and working fine. I did some noise removal editing, re-saved the project and then closed my computer down for the evening.
This morning, I went to open the project file and got an error saying that the project was missing 540 audio blocks. I also get a separate message saying that Audacity has detected 540 orphan blocks that it doesn’t associate with any particular project. I’m confused because I never moved data files around, messed with anything else, etc. All the .au block files exist and I can listen to them through Audacity in 6 second increments.
I’m trying to see if there’s any way to re-constitute or repair the project file such that it recognizes the correct .au files in my _data folder. I never specified where to save the _data folder but it appears Audacity automatically created it on my desktop since that’s where my project file was saved.
I’ve attached the .aup file to this post as well as the Audacity log that comes up when I try to open the project.
I’m willing to try whatever to salvage the episode, though I’m certainly well aware now that it was a mistake not to immediately export the raw .WAV file. I’ll be doing that going forward.
Any help would be tremendously appreciated and I’m more than happy to provide whatever other attachments might be of use.
