This happened to me and I was freaking out. But I ended up finding the audio recordings. Here's what I did on my Mac. Found the file using Terminal but this isn't necessary once you know where Evernote stores recordings. If you don't you can use this tutorial. http://www.maclife.com/article/columns/terminal_101_using_find_command. The terminal search I used was ~/ -iname "*.wav" The folder where Evernote stores recording before processing was //Users/[name]/Library/Application Support/Evernote/accounts/[name]/pending-audio/ The [name] part is specific to your computer. Hope this helps.
