Removed unused media on display computer

Recommended Posts

Hi

Is there a way to have the display computer delete unused media?

In the project I use "Select unused media" function, then click delete.

I would assume that since live update is on, or when I press ctrl+d it would also remove these files from the display computer.

But when I remote desktop in to the Watchmax, the show uses 305GB allthough it is only 125GB on the production machine.
Maybe there is something wrong with our setup, or am I doing this the wrong way ?

No, it will not do that.

Simplest way is to completely delete the show on the display computer and then retransfer the show.

Aha. That explains it.

I would say that this is  a obvious feature request then, I don't see why the end-user should do this house keeping.

Thanks

Nikolai,

Another option you have is to create an empty show, for example "clear shows" with the same displays you want to clean and use the funtion Stage/Manage Display/Delete Other Shows.... Very useful to clean many computers at same time.
