Default Re: Freeze Routing Folder & Contents

Anything that is inactive(tracks, or plugins) will/should use zero system resources. Personally, I would lean more to freezing track, but leave the folder tracks alone. Having said that, I would also be careful with track freeze and keep things frozen ONLY as long as the files stay on your computer. If the session is to be opened on another system, unfreeze everything before the move. Just to be totally on the safe side, I would save a copy of the session(with media/audio files), just in case(you'll never regret doing this, but you might regret not doing it). My preference would be to commit whenever possible, over the freeze option
