    What makes you think the project is too big? Do you get an error message that says so? What is the size of the project?


    If the project turns out to be corrupted, you can still try to rescue the single recordings: ctrl-click your project in the Finder, select "Show Package Contents", go to the Media folder - it should contain all the recordings, unedited.

    The error message that I see in your screenshot "Exception type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS" and "KERN PROTECTION FAILURE" is a typical data error. It can be, that one of the audio recordings is in some way corrupted and cannot be opened.

    Since you can see all the contents, I'd suggest to try the following: Copy the recorded audio tracks from the project to your Desktop and try to play them from the Finder. Try to find out, which of the audio files is corrupted. If you can find it, remove this file from your project to the Trash. Then try again to open your project in GarageBand. You will get a warning, that an audio file is missing - ignore it.
