How to Fix GarageBand Audio File Not Found on Mac

Yesterday I recorded an interview for an assignment using the podcast option, and it kept skipping over all the audio and saying it couldn't be played (after I tested it in the morning). I tried to reopen the file, and it kept saying, "Audio file not found". Please help me restore this file so I can get my assignment done.

When your Mac prompts that GarageBand audio files not found, you should look for your Mac Trash to see whether you accidentally deleted your audio files. If the audio files can be found in Trash, you can recover audio on Mac.

If the Trash is empty, you can't find your audio files anywhere. Recovering audio files with software could be effective. EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for Mac is a powerful file recovery tool. It can recover GarageBand files on Mac and restore various file types from different devices, such as SD cards, hard drives, USB drives, etc.

Step 2. Click on the 'Scan' button to search for all lost files, and choose the file type of audio.

Step 3. Select the audio files needed to restore, click 'Preview' to see detailed information, and click 'Recover' to get them back.
