Mac OS 10.13.3 I am trying to reload a project and the data file is there but not the app file. Is there any way to retrieve it please.

Audacity needs the MyProject.aup file and the MyProject_data folder (for example). The folder is useless without the AUP file. What happened to the AUP file?

No idea, just seems to have vanished. It is not in the trash and I usually keep my files pretty well. I can only thinks I may have accidentally deleted it. If it had been an intentional delete, I would have done the data file too. Oh well, thanks for your help. Back to the drawing board.
