    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?!?

    Check the manual under Audio Pool. It's there. The manual is your friend.

    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.
