The safest way to rename a project is to:
1) Open the project in Audacity,
2) "File menu > Check dependencies". If the project is not self contained, select the option to copy the dependencies into the project.
3) Use "File menu > Save Project As" and enter a new name. This will create a new, self contained copy of the project (a new AUP file and a new _data folder). Remember to keep the AUP file and _data folder together and avoid renaming them manually.
