Since I got into HD with my Canon HV20 I've been filling internal and external hard drives like no tomorrow. My TerraByte drives are full. I have thousands of files with extensions like: PRV, CFA, DEK, MACC, XMPSES and more. I don't know what I can delete and what I need to keep, collectively they are taking up an incredible amount of space.
Right now, I'm really hung up as I'm virtually out of space on one drive and CS2 can't conform (?) or render my movie.
How do Premiere CS2 users organize their files - what do they keep and for how long?
Ideas and methods would be much appreciated. Thanks.
If the project is finished and you never need to return to it. Export an uncompressed Master and archive it with the Source files and a .proj file. Use an external drive. (I use a e sata HD docking station for this purpose.)
