You say that there are temporary files that can be recovered manually, but
how do you do it? I have a data directory full of files but do not know what
to do next - Help!

If you have had a crash (i.e. failed to save your work and close
Audacity properly), please see here for instructions on recovering
=2Eau files in Audacity's temporary folder using Crash Recovery Utility: =
Please note the .au files need to be numbered consecutively when
input to the Crash Recovery Utility or errors will occur in the program.=20
If this problem occurs you can open Audacity's temporary folder in your=20
system File Manager and try resorting them by time modified and then=20
batch renaming the .au files using a numeric sequence whilst they are=20
sorted by modified time. If your file manager does not have a suitable=20
tool, you should be able to obtain suitable free tools on the internet.
Also note there is a 2 GB maximum size for any WAV file created from
reconstructing the temporary files and there may be errors if this size=20
is exceeded. In that case you would need to split the .au files in the=20
temporary folder into two or more groups, each containing=20
consecutively numbered files, and recover each group separately. =20
Outbound message clean.
