Project not saved but audio not deleted either??

Hello,
I recorded vocals yesterday and did not save the project before I left the studio.
I came back in later in the evening before bed and shut down cubase. While I did it asked me if I wanted to save the project–I said “No”. (I was sleepy and I usually save everything at the moment I’m working…)

It then said there was new audio would I like to delete it? That triggered something n my tired brain and I said “No” as well.

I opened the project this morning and searched the audio pool for any files from yesterday’s date–there were none.

My question is:
Is there some secondary pool for audio since i didn’t delete the files I had recorded?

Thank you in advance if you can help.

No.

Look in the audio folder using “file/import” and import the files back into the pool.

Thanks Split–that was super helpful.
