I’m sorry I wasn’t able to respond earlier due to a (local) extended power and internet outage due to hurricane Ian here in south western Florida. I am just now trying to catch up on my email which will take a while yet.

See if the first post on this thread is of any help: Corrupt or Otherwise Broken Audacity Project Recovery

If not, then if your project is in the form of an .aup3 file, then zip it up and post it; send me a link and I’ll take a look at it. If your project is in the form of an .aup file with an _data directory with lots of little .au files, then perhaps someone else here can post some clues.
