ios How to recover audio recording?

Recommended Posts

I made an audio recording in Evernote on my iPad, and when I stopped the recording, the file vanished. It's not in the trash, or in the note. Is there a temporary file folder, or any way to recover the recording?

This just happened to me on my MacBook Pro. I stopped the recording, saved the file and then closed the window. And now I lost a 45 min interview recording! I didn't realize Evernote was so unstable. I will definitely no longer use the audio note for such important recordings.

Also, I can't believe there was not answer to this. I can't believe there is no way to recover a file.

I cant bloody belive on this, just happened with me too. I was recording an interview for a important project and when I stoped my 15 min conversation with the CEO of an agency the audio went alway, vanished, that simple.

Please, someone help. It must be in the Ipad somewhere. I wont be able to make the interview again.

So I don't know about the MacBook but I was able to recover the recording from the iPad using DiskAid: http://www.digidna.net/products/diskaid

It essentially lets you use the iPad (and iPod touch) as an external hard drive. I found it in the Evernote folder.

In the future, it would be great if the file wouldn't just disappear if it can't sync, that caused some major stress.

I just downloaded the DiskAid on my computer, I can access all the files in the Ipad, but not from the evernote, I open the folder and I only find 2 folders, Inbox and another one called, www.evernote.com.

I only have a PDF on the Inbox folder.

On the www.evernote.com one, I have a folder that is my e-mail and inside of these one there are somes files, and another folder called pending. And there are none of my files on none of it.

This is so crazy.

This SAME THING happened to me several times. The quality of Evernote's version control is very poor... can't be trusted... note sure I'll renew my Premium account unless they fix this!

Hey Guys,

I am having the same problem. I think that we will be more likely to get the creators of the app to fix the bug by writing a review for the app in app store.

I have noticed that when I record in EverNote on my MacBook Pro the recordings do not show up on my computer. I have no idea where to look for them. If anybody know where to look for them please tell me.

The upside is that when I use my iPhone4 to record on EverNote the recordings show up in the note. The downside of this is that whatever I record on my computer does not show up on my phone.

You probably already did this but i found my recording by doing a search for a .wav file. It pulls them all up. Do it on the Mac. Evernote recorded but did not attach it to the evernote file but it was on my computer.

Hello!

I've almost lost my recording of important interview today.  I am using version  5.0.4 (400702) on Mac.

After finding this thread I tried search my mac using Spotlight search, but failed. 

I already thought, that nothing can help me, but decided to use find utility from terminal.

BINGO! My lost recording was found in trash.

Y'all have iPads & stuff but I made a critical recording on my phone and the next time I went to record the title of the first.recording came up and said there was nothing in the note so it was either save somethin empty or delete.

I searched notes.for the title of my recording but nada. Where ARE recordings? I saved the first recording to a specific notebook and.the empty thing I deleted was in IN.

I know how inexperienced I am compared to.you all but I am freaking out here.

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.

It's true! You can find your "lost" audio recording in the trash. To be very clear (for EN newbies like me), open the Evernote application on your computer. Look for the trash icon. Click it. Click it again. There it is!

 

Mac OS X 7.0.5 on my wireless home network; iPhone and iPad are set to wirelessly sync with desktop iMac

Used iPhone 5 and free Evernote app to make loooong recording. The app broke up the recording into 25-mb chunks and refused to let me upload/share the chunks (even with myself, it seems).

 

I looked in Evernote's trash, had to click it a couple of times. Never mind about digging in the Library folder! Hurray!

I use Disk Aid.  I did a voice recording with it just to see.  In the folder that you see the inbox and your email, you should also see a file with the extension .m4a.  That file appeared after I did the recording.  I'm thinking if the recording is somewhere it isn't within evernote.

Diskaid worked for me too.

 

I found my file in Evernote->Library->Private Documents->www.evernote.com->14993->content->[random directory name]

 

I had to go through each directory under content to find my file

I know this is IOS, but just in case someone is looking form an ANDROID phone, I found my lost recordings here:

 

\Internal storage\Android\data\com.evernote\files\unsaved_notes

 

they are saved as .amr files, not .wav.  They play in VLC media player in the least.  Maybe other programs too.

 

Happy hunting!

Thank you so much "EvernoteMember"! I was recording my lecture on my macbook, went to a different note, and then the recording stopped and did not automatically save. I would like to add that once you find the .wav file using the terminal app, you should highlight the file > right click > reveal in finder. This is the fastest way to actually finding the file once it is pulled up on terminal.

In fact, it is possible to recover deleted data from hard drive, when a file is deleted from hard drive, it doesn't mean that the file has been wiped from , the files system just make a "deleted" flag to the data, whihc make us can't see it as normal. Until new data save to the space where the original data save in, it will be overwritten by new data. therefore, you can try to use iPhone Data Recovery to recover audio recording from iPhone.

Accidentally deleted a recording on my Mac. Was moving it around on the page, then it vanished. Not deleted per se. Found it in the trash. Dragged it back to the not from trash - no problem. All good.

You may loose ur recording for following reasons:

The action of third party apps may erase the Voice recordings.

Some external threats like viruses or malwares has infected your Android device.

While moving voice recordings files to another location and suddenly the power fails.

You might have selected wrong voice recording clip while marking the unwanted clips for deletion.

All files would be erased from the internal memory of the device while restoring it to the factory settings.

 

But you don’t have to worry on how you will recover your data..

I would suggest you to opt for Android data recovery to recover deleted/corrupted recordings

@mohan37, I know you got..er..reprimanded for posting this here, but I want to say thanks. This thread is the one that came up for me first and I needed this info for Android. Shame I had to find it in the iPhone section, but I wasn't finding it anywhere else. Thanks

When you record or save any audio speech or video file on your mobile, it gets stored in your phone with .amr extensions. So when you lost your audio files somehow either due to damage or unintentional deletion, you are actually need to recover this .amr files to get back your lost audio files back on your SD card.

 

For the recovery of such AMR files you need to make use of Card Data Recovery software. It is efficient recovery software for .amr files which performs rigorous scanning option of your drive or retrieving back the AMR files after the situation of loss of data.Not only from SD card it can also recover photos and video, music files from SDHC, SDXC, CF, xD, MMC and Memory Sticks. you must try this....it will surely help you!!!

 In order to recover your deleted audio recordings, I want to suggest you to go with the most appropriate solution or simple and guaranteed recovery. I personally use this Android Data Recovery Tool for the recovery of any deleted or lost data from android. You can also directly recover the lost document, SMS, WhatsApp messages, photos, videos, etc with the help of this tool; this software can also be used for other phones like Samsung SmartPhone, and android devices, like Motorola, Sony, HTC, etc. it is the perfect tool to recover back your deleted or lost audio files.

No one from the EN support team has not responded to this issue yet. These issues are ongoing since 2012 and the audio recordings still go straight to trash? I used EN today for an important meeting (all day meeting I might add), luckily halfway through I checked the audio and it was of incredibly poor quality and could not pick up half the voices in the room (despite the volume tracker showing otherwise). I was looking for a serious business note app. <_<

Hi everyone. I just wanted to say thanks for all the tips and trix in this thread and tell you how I solved this issue for myself. It was a bit of a fluke I might add.

I recorded an important meeting yesterday in an Evernote note, opened my computer today (without closing it properly yesterday) and realised the recording was still going on! Without thinking, I pressed the X instead of the pause button and the recording was gone.

After a lot of tries in terminal, finder etc I opened the computers Trash Bin in the dock. And there it was!!!

So, just a tip - look there first!

So happy!

Have a great day! /Anna
