Default Huge audio files created on crash!?!?

I've been having this weird situation in which after a crash (usually when doing fast editing) PT creares a 1.98 gig audio file that has no sound... they are always the same size.
Can anybody relate to this?

Thanks

Anibal

Default Re: Huge audio files created on crash!?!?

Prior to recording, Pro Tools allocates space on the drive and the amount of space is determined by how many minutes are selected in the Preferences. When ProTools crashes while recording the allocated amount of the drive shows up as recorded data. If you want to keep the audio that was recorded on the track prior to the crash, you can import the file into the session, highlight the actual audio portion and duplicate it and permanently delete the old file.

Hope this helps.
