How to record Long Playing recording with Audacity?

I have Audacity 1.2.6 installed and it started throwing errors while trying to record Long Playing (LP) recording. I completed one side of the record without problem. On turning the other side and start recording the Audio track, I got message that appears for almost 10 times per second and I was unable to cancel it. The error states: "Cannot open file 'C:UsersadminAppDataLocalTempaudacity_1_2_tempb00590.aub00710.au' (Error3 : The System cannot find the specified path) Date,Time…" On searching the file using the Command option shows:


Verzeichnis von C:UsersadminAppDataLocalTempaudacity_1_2_temp

2 Verzeichnis(se), 62.740.803.584 Bytes frei


On clicking the rewind button sets the Play option with no result on clicking it. And on pressing the forward button displays the following error and the value of b00717.au keeps on increasing with every forward clicks:
"Can't open file C:UsersadminAppDataLocalTempaudacity_1_2_tempb00590.aub00717.au"
Can anyone please explain the procedure for recording an LP and state where I am going wrong?
If possible, please help me locate a tutorial so that I can follow it.

How to record Long Playing recording with Audacity?

Recording on Audacity is stored on hard drives of the computer, so as long as there are disk space available it should be okay. There are no restrictions on the recording length or the times you can record. There is a message on the status bar saying ‘Disk space remains for recording’ when you start a recording to show how much recording time is available. You may want to check on that and try to delete old files and folders, select a different disk on Directories Preferences, record mono instead of using stereo or set the format to 16-bit instead of 32-bit. Special Character in filenames may also cause the error as it is not recognizable. Use only letters, numbers, underscore and dashes.
