How can I move projects?

My local disk is filling and need to move unused projects/sessions to an external drive.

Best to ask this in the PT First section of the DUC. Moderators will probably move this anyway. Regarding "projects", that word is used to refer to cloud-based work. What resides on your internal drive are "sessions". There are 2 ways to off-load to an external drive.
#1-(the easy way): drag the entire session folder for each song onto your external drive(with the option to COPY or MOVE)
#2-(the SAFE way): Open each song>go to FILE>Save Copy In>check the box to Copy Audio Files>save to your external drive

The better I drink...the more I mix.....

BTW, my name is Dave, but most people call me.........................Dave
