Notawiz Posted December 9, 2011 Share Posted December 9, 2011 Hi! I have a bit of a problem - mainly it's about me being lazy, but all in all I think there should also be another kind of answer. I'm looking for the easiest possible way to clean up all my project audio folders - and I think the easiest way to do that would be with an application of some sort. Hear my lament: I know that it's fairly easy to clean up the audio folder of a single project. Go to the bin, select unused, delete files, select unused, press delete, select all, optimize files. There. With that, I usually free 20-100 MB of space on my hard drive - per project! So a pretty important and useful thing to do. Now the problem is, I only learned this recently. I know, I should have read the thousand pages of boring and barely comprehensible text also known as the manual - but that's the first instance where my laziness comes in. Since I started using Logic, I think I've created something like 1800 projects. Not all of them have audio, but that still leaves over a thousand that do. Here again, the laziness strikes. With all the Kontakt, ProjectSAM and other big plugins, effects and so on, many of the project files it can take several minutes to open. Furthermore, I have done something I perhaps shouldn't have: very, very often I've created several .logic-files in the same project folder, to use the contents of the same audio folder. Smart at first, perhaps, but now when I want to clean it all up - a pain in the butt. If I have understood this correctly, I would need to consolidate each of the .logic-files (sub-projects) into their own project folders, because otherwise optimizing one project file might delete audio files used by the other sub-projects. That too can be done, yes, but - uhm, yes, the laziness. Now, my question is this: is there - or shouldn't there be - an application or a script that you can command to clean up a Logic audio folder? An application that would simply go through (all) the project(s) in the project folder and delete everything that the projects don't use? That would really be a treat. But am I hoping too much? How are you guys doing with your audio folders? Nice and trimmed, each and every one of you? No fellow sufferers, companions in misfortune? Am I alone with this curse of laziness?
