Hi, i noticed that in the material folder i have many proxy files like 'V0073IQ9.A2.proxy.1080.a1.mxf'.

I try different import method (link, copy and transcode) and discovered that using the MXF import/transcoding method and then delete from LW the media all theese proxy files where not deleted.

I make a new project and a new media folder to check this and to be sure.

Check this, plaese... i have different projects (some of them already deleted) and tons of theese proxy files and don't no what to do with becasue LW use only one folder for all projects. It is impossible to know which project it belongs to. Can i still delete them all without create a disaster on current projects?

No, you should not delete those files. The file you show is an audio file which belongs most likely to transcoded video. With V14 some files are named proxy although they aren't proxies.

The only safe way to clean up media folders is making backups of all projects including all media, then deleting all projects from Project browser. The remaining rest in Media folder should be obsolete.
