is that passable to add the autosave and backup file with additional file?

You will always also want to do a File > Export > Export as WAV at least of your original recording. See here: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/aud ... %20on%20it.

Audacity's recovery function has already been updated to work with the new 3.0.0 aup3 file format.

Thanks for the review and give me the feedback.
if all the above issues already addresses in AUP3 then I will keep check the new update and test it and provide feedback to the team.
