Hi, I'm working in 12.1. When I opened up Adobe Audition, all my work on the timeline is gone. I saved it several times and I always save before closing. The original audio files are there under "files", but none of the timeline work is there. I was working in 'multitrack'. I've even opened up a back up session of the same file and there's nothing there in regards to the timeline either. Can someone help me to a) find the timeline work if it still exists, b) ensure this doesn't happen again? I mean, what did I do wrong if I've saved my project multiple times and even before closing? Unless I'm doing something totally wrong and it's here somewhere? Truth be told, I'm newer to audtion, but I'm worked in premiere a ton. Interface is similar, so not sure what I'm doing wrong if anything.
Let me move this to the Audition forum for you, which is the appropriate forum for your question.

Audition works with Session files - it's not quite the same as Premiere. It's the last session file you need to open to get everything back where you left it, and this is normally backed up at regular intervals, either on your machine on on Adobe's Creative Cloud, depending upon how you've set this up. If you do this, and you get greyed-out files and a request to relink them, then it's because the files aren't where the session was expecting to find them - which would only happen if you moved them.
Ideally you should save the backup session files on your local machine - backing them up to the cloud is asking for trouble, I'd say. You get to choose the location in Edit>Preferences>Autosave.
