Question: voice memos original file cannot be found. how do I find it?

I need help retrieving some lost voice memos. Here is my info:


iphone 6plus with ios 11.2.6


MacBook Air ( vintage at this point 2011)

processor: 1.7 GHz

Memory: 4GB

High Sierra 10.13.4

itunes 12.7.4.76


I have about 230 voice memos (VM) I was saving. Today I see a lot of vms with an exclamation point and I get the message:


The song “name x ” could not be used because the original file could not be found. Would you like to locate it?


When I click yes it opens the finder in a file I created (I think) called docs and scans from my iphone. I see only pdfs.

Is there any other way I could find the original? I never deleted them and I have no idea how to search for the original file...


Thanks for any help!!

Voice memos imported during sync operations should end up at <Media Folder>/Voice Memos/yyyymmdd-hhmmss.m4a. If the Voice Memos folder is empty do you have a Time Machine backup that might hold the missing files?
