I have 1 TB of storage on my desktop. I currently edit in Adobe Premiere Elements and am wondering if I should delete all of my rendered files. Out of 931 GB I have 124 GB free. This includes 155 GB in my Music/Audo library, 14.4 GB in my documents library and 359 GB in my Video library. This brings my legitimate storage to 528.4 GB. I have 18 GB of RAM and am wondering if the rest of this is just rendered files taking up too much space. Please help. Thanks in advance.
p.s.- I wonder if I'm saving my edited files the wrong way also. I keep getting the dreaded "required codec not installed" message when I go to open a saved file from my folders.
>Honestly, I'm not sure what codec I'm saving them in
Ah... nobody here can see your computer screen, so you need to pay attention to your export options
Also, some reading...

Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... a screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing
If you have projects that you're in the process of editing, you will need to re-render them.
If by "saved projects" you mean video that you've output or Shared from the program, no it wil not.
