Somewhat related: something I’m interested in is getting rid of unused audio files (like takes that I didn’t choose during comping) because my SSD is getting full and I think it’s mostly from stuff I don’t even need. I think there’s a way to do that… one thing I’m a bit worried about though is if I have multiple saved versions of a project all in the same folder, and some of the older ones might be using audio that the newest one isn’t… maybe that’s not a big deal.
Cristina, one thing you can do, of course, is use File >> Clean current project directory.
But another approach would be to use ‘save as’ and use the features in the save window to make a new folder and copy (or move) the source audio to an entirely new project. Only the audio you have kept in the arrangement is copied/moved. Then go and delete the original folder; or you could create new projects in the same way for all of the projects that are important to you, then move the old folder to a different hard drive for backup purposes. Just a thought.
I keep each project in a different folder. It’s just that sometimes I have multiple versions… so for example I might decide to go in a different direction with the arrangement but want to keep the older version around in case I change my mind. So I might have a title.rpp and title-v2.rpp in the same folder. Ideally I’d like to keep any audio that either of them need…
This sounds like a good way to clean up when I have multiple versions. I could just do that for each version and then end up with the right set of files. Thanks!
