How do I recover a lost recording?

If you encounter a recording issue, check to see if the recording file can be recovered.

  1. In the top bar, click Help > Debug > Open Folder > Open User Folder.
  2. Where to find your recording:
    • If you used the recorder in the editor, the file could be in the "recordings" or "assets" folder.
    • If you used the Quick Recorder, the file could be in the "screen recordings" or "assets" folder.
  3. You will see a list of folders named by project ID. Sort these folders by date. 
  4. Find a folder that was created or modified around the time you made the recording.
  5. Open the folder to see if your recording file is there. If it is, you can copy it to your desktop and import it back into Descript.
