Audio file management ► The Project Files dialog

SONAR projects, extension .cwp, contain all your project information with the exception of your digital audio data. This data is stored in a separate folder or folders. You can opt to save the audio data for all of your projects in a single audio folder, or create multiple folders.
The Project Files dialog box lists all of your project’s audio files and their location. This dialog box is a valuable tool for managing your audio files. Access the dialog by opening a project and choosing Project > Audio Files.
