How can I delete Auria Pro auto saves?

Last time I worked with Auria back in 2014, it would automatically back up everything I had made. I suspect that it’s still doing that. How do you delete the auto saved files to free up space? I had it figured out way back, but I’ve completely forgotten how it’s done. I have 512Gb version, so I have storage space, but I remember how much work it was to go in and delete massive files one at a time. Is there a way to delete multiple files at once?Thank you in advance!
P.S. I already know how to delete the regular files, but not the auto backup.

  • Hi,
    I could be wrong, but I don’t think Auria does auto save projects. It does auto save Snapshots though and there is no way I know off to turn them off, but I don’t think they take up much space. If you need to delete these snapshots you can by going to Load Snapshot, Edit and deleting. Imo, it’s not really worth doing this coz they take so little space

    All the best

    Thank you very much for your reply, I appreciate it, I’m taking up 10Gb of space in AP somewhere, and I just figured it was do to auto saves, as I already went in and deleted everything I could find.

  • @Ripper7620 : snapshots use up almost no memory. In the settings dialog in AP, there is a clean up project command that gets rid of unreferenced audio files.

    Also, you can hand prune files using the import files dialog in AP--it lets you see the audio files in a project. Left-swiping files can be used to delete. BUT be certain you aren't deleting a file in use. I'd backup a project first to ensure against breaking it.

    Thank you very much for making that so easy to understand, I appreciate it!

    I’m not exactly clear on what this means .

  • @Ripper7620 there are a lot of “this’s”

    The Auria Pro manual is searchable. It is worth loading it into iBooks. It will answer many questions like this.

    There’s an easy to miss “Clean Up Project” link in Settings > General. If you load up a project, then press this, it will get rid of unneeded audio clips, freezes, etc. You have to do it project by project, but that will probably help if you haven’t been doing that already.

    Thank you very much for your reply, I’ll start doing that as I finish projects. Last time I worked with Auria, you had to go into some menu and delete backups by hand, if I’m remembering correctly,
