Premiere Elements 7 offers some increased stability -- but the basic performance of Premiere Elements has remained pretty much the same through its five generations. The main reason to upgrade would be the new features, as detailed in the FAQs to the right of this forum.
As for MOD files from JVC Everios, they are some of the most challenging for any video editor to work with. If you'll do a Google search, you'll find a wealth of complaints about them.
Jake Ludington offers his simple solution for making them a bit easier to work with.
Finally, the best way to delete old projects is to plan ahead when you're creating the project! If each time you start a new project you open it in a new folder (as I recommend in my "Muvipix.com Guide to Premiere Elements 7"), removing the old project, its media files and its temp files is as simple as deleting the folder.
It gets a bit more complicated if you create several projects in the same folder on your hard drive. The .proj file (the project file) is actually very small. It's the temp, render and media files that take up the most space. Temp and render files can be found in sub-folders within the same folder as the .proj file.
I wasn't expecting to get a reply until after Easter! I'll have a look at
the forums/ articles you suggested.
Lovin' your work.
Hey, even the Easter Bunny has to work today, Maya! Glad I can help.
Presumably Steve you mean deleting files in Win Explorer as I am completely baffled how on earth you delete within Prem 7. There is nowt that I can find at all that helps.
Right. Using Windows Explorer to delete the files.
