Since each file is 1 MB and there are about as many of these as there
are megabytes in the original WAV file, I've always thought these were
the "special" audio format for Audacity...each 1 MB is a separate file,
linked together in the program.
It seems to be referred to as the "Audacity Block File" in a quick
I think if you delete these, you are deleting your audio.
I do not think Audacity is a native WAV editor like say Samplitude,
Sequoia, Goldwave, Wavelab, etc. If you want to spend $50, my personal
opinion is Goldwave runs rings around Audacity. Samplitude is my favourite.

We recently noticed that there are a bunch of extra files that end in .auf They are all about 1000 KB and have a name along the lines of b02720. There are TONS of these files. We are wondering what they are and if it is safe to delete them or not?
