What is the safest way to deflate a bloated file? I am having difficulty opening my Premiere project file because it is over 2 gigs. I have recently updated my entire CS6 collection, so from what I understand the bloated issue is fixed, but I still can't open my project. What is the best way to deal with this issue? Should I open the file in a text editor and erase duplicate code? Or should I open a new project and import the project file? What causes files to bloat?
My OS is Snow Leopard and I am working on a mac pro (xeon 2006) 12 gigs of ram.
