Applicable to main editor recordings only

This article provides steps for potentially recovering a recording made using the recorder in the main editor. If you encountered issues using the Quick Recorder, please reach out to our support team for assistance.

If you encounter a recording issue while using the in-app recorder, check to see if the recording file can be recovered.

Desktop folder

If Descript stops an Editor recording unexpectedly, we generally create a folder called Descript Recording datetime (for instance, Descript Recording 2022-11-18 09.01.07.483)on the desktop, which should include the file that was recorded up until the crash.

Finder window on macOS desktop with Descript recording recovery folders listed.

Once located, you can then import the recording into the project.
