    Hi all

    I have a project where there are possibly multiple copies of the same source.

    This is obviously using up a lot of un-neccessary disk space.

    I think the editing is now finished (awaiting final OK from the client)

    What is the best way to delete un-used source media?


    cheers

    Buy an inexpensive hard drive and backup the whole project.

    Because as soon as you go and delete unused media, the client will change their mind and want what you deleted.

    Hi David

    the video files have been imported more than once, so duplicates exit in different folders. I was hoping to delete files that aren't linked to during the editing, but still retain one copy of all files on the drive.
