[ddots-l] Re: Overflowing Outtakes

I'm not sure you have any unnecessary/extraneous audio files in you folder. 
I think sonar creates files for clip mixes etcetera that don't necessarily 
sound like they should be there.  Probably best to let Sonar manage the 
audio files and just use the "clean audio" function now and then.

As it states in the help system, Sonar uses an intelligent scheme to manage 
audio files.  Maybe if you do some bouncing to clips and/or tracks, it might 
consolidate some of the mix-combining multiple clips/files to a single track 
clip/file.  Then trying clean audio again.
