Delete unused audio.. warning of file useage?

I made a test project, and then a couple days later went to delete used files from the BIn, and got this message.

I know that the files were created & used in only this one test song, so why does Logic warn me that they are used in other projects.

I searched my system and found only two other files with this name, and they have diff dates and sizes.

Surely L8 is not referring to these files?

Logic warns you because of the same file name. It's a good habit to name tracks before you record.



Well, I do name my files, as you can see below the actual files I was deleting. These were the level settings tests only, so they aren't named.

Surely L8 could use it's computing power to match the record dates/& or size also to aviod confusion... in the future maybe?

Are you auto-saving backups of the session? It counts these as other songs using the file, too.


Hey, Maybe that's why.

I will check my setting when I get back into the studio.

So maybe L8 does refer to the size & date of files after all?

I feel another test coming on.

Unless someone knows that answer before I get back in tomorrow.


"is it safe?" .... to delete.
