Urgent help needed

I’m working on an audacity project at school, my school recently upgraded from windows xp to windows 7 and downloaded the newest version of audacity. Now I can’t access my project, when I click to open it audacity opens but an error message comes up and my sound isn’t there.

Please help, how can I get my project back?

Don’t keep it a secret. What did the error say?

Audacity Projects are perfectly forward compatible. Something else happened. Did you separate the AUP file and the _DATA folder? They must be together for a show to open. Did you use lots of external sound files? You need to bring the sound files with you for Audacity to open the show unless you told Audacity to make personal copies of the music.


What was the version of Audacity? Help > About. What was the exact filename that you called your show?
