I had a 20 mins podcast running and my computer suddenly turned off and I didn’t save the audio. When turning Audacity back on it showed an automatically “saved” Project but I haven’t been able to open it for the entire day because it doesn’t recognize it as it is a “.lnk shortcut audio”. I don’t understand why it auto-saved it in this .lnk Format. I have looked all over google and forums but no help on turning this .lnk into an audio format or how to recover it. Please help! :(
