2.
Go to Utilities > Clean Audio Folder.
3.
Make sure the Project/Audio Folder field is set to the root folder the project lives in.
4.
Make sure Search entire PC is not selected.
5.
Click Find. Cakewalk recursively searches the selected folder for audio files that are unused by the current project, and displays the names of these files in the list.
Click Delete All, and click Yes to confirm
7.
Click Close when you are done.
Note: Select Search entire PC if you have backup versions of the current project file saved in another location.
Tip: If you save multiple copies of a project in subfolders, set Project/Audio Folder to the root folder that contains the projects. This ensures that all the projects will be scanned.
3.
Go to Utilities > Clean Audio Folder.
4.
Make sure the Project/Audio Folder field is set to the global audio folder (default when no project is loaded). Search entire PC is automatically enabled.
5.
Click Find. Cakewalk searches the entire system for project files, and lists any audio files in the Project/Audio Folder that do not belong to projects on your system. If any corrupted or unreadable project files exist on your system, the Unreadable Files dialog box appears. It is very important that you restore any unreadable files from a backup before continuing, otherwise you risk data loss.
Click Delete All, and click Yes to confirm

Click Close when you are done.
