I'm writing you because i've started to record a file with ardour on Ubuntu Feisty but a question came to me in order to get things easier: is it a way to delete .wav files of the regions(placed into interchange/projectname/audiofiles) which are used no more in the track? In other words, I forgot to select "tape mode" for my tracks and now I've got a lot of files which where only attemps to get the final record I own right now; is there a way to delete them only with an internal ardour command instead looking out the no-more-used-file name, going to the folder where regions are saved, delete all the files u need no more(which is quite long)?

thank you
(I hope u understand)

hi, i think that you are looking for 'cleanup unused sources' feature?

go to 'menu-session-cleanup-cleanup unused sources'.
on the next restart of the session, the option 'flush wastebasket' will be available to you.

hope that helps?!

cheers,
doc

You should not use tape mode unless you really, really understand what it is for and what it implies.
