    Sound Recorder stopped while Windows Update started


    While I was recording about 1 hour seminar, the Windows Update restarted the computer .
    I need to find the lost recorded file, probably a temp file.
    I've looked at C:\Users\<username> \AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.WindowsSoundRecorder_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\Indexed\Recordings
    and I couldn't find the file.
    I checked the hidden files also.

    Thanks a lot for any support.

    The file may not be available. Generally recording files are not saved until the user "saves" the file.
    But, if the file was somehow saved the saved file name will start with $. Do a full hard drive search using *$* and see if it finds anything.

    Thank you for your reply. I've tried to search but the expected file was not found. Does someone knows how to debug the app and find the exact location where the files can be recorded before to be saved?
