So after about 100. 292483240934 million takes with my band I have a ton of unused files still saved. Whats the easiest way to cleanup the files that aren't used in the project in Cubase?

You know I tried that one time with Cubase SX3 and for some reason it deleted EVERYTHING in the pool. I was hoping that it would delete those items that aren't actually IN the project file that I was currently using. Say you have a project that you are working in and you take like 50 takes of a song and then come up with the best version. So you have files in the project file that would show something like for example kick_50.wav So I thought by cleaning the pool it would delete versions 1-49 but it didn't do that. It deleted 1-50 and cleaned out the entire pool. I've been so disturbed over this with Nuendo 3.2.1 that I've just been cleaning things by hand after each session. Kinda gets tiring after 9 songs with 9 different project folders. I did read the manual but maybe there was a change between the older Nuendo manual which they sent for me and the updated version of Nuendo 3.2.1.

Its always bothered me as I know there is a better way but I'm scared to death to lose an entire project by deleting everything.

Again, I have to insist that you use the manual. That's what it's for! there is indeed a way to delete unused files in the pool and if that isn't enough of a clue for you, READ THE MANUAL! If I and tens of thousands of other paying customers had to, then you certainly can.
