so I am archiving projects from this season and figuring out a better data storage workflow for next season. I exported all projects to a NAS so my dashboard is pretty empty except for some long term projects. If there is a need to go back to a past project I can quickly load it from the NAS to a PC and work from there.
The problem I see is that the “Data” folder in the data storage folder gets bloated (?) with TIFs, PNGs and OVRs, JSONs etc. even if I there are no projects loaded in P4Df. By looking at the files I can see that they from past (exported) projects. At this moment this folder contains 90+ GB of files I can’t use or delete through the P4Df software.
Do these “left-over” files have a purpose? Are these files safe to delete if I have a backup of all project externally? Will deleting the files mess with the software functioning?
Any input would be great!
