    During any project I have piles of unwanted files: mistakes, false starts, unloved takes and so on. These get saved automatically, and in the end just take up unnecessary space. Cleaning up afterwards is useful for reclaiming that lost space, but also for having a clean folder if you need to share it with someone for a reason.

    Open the project, save to a new folder SONG_NAME_NEW, and you will have only the files needed for the current version of the song.

    It was quite alarming to see that my first reaper recording had over 300 unused wavs!...and 450 in total 😳...indicative of my poor playing and the miracle of auto punch 🤣🤣
