Default Re: Managing rendered files

Thanks for your reply. A couple of questions...

It doesn't appear PT has been clearing any old files (if that had been happening I wouldn't have 7 GB).

Not sure what you mean be a "default workspace". Do you mean the session I'm working on?

Also not clear what you mean by saving a "version up."

Just to be clear all I'm referring to are the rendered files (appended with "FZ"): Not clips or audio files.
