Removing Unused Audio Files

You can use the Cleanup function to locate and delete unused audio files in the project folders on your disk.


Make sure that you have not moved or renamed files or folders without updating the project files to use the new paths. Also make sure that the project folder does not contain audio files that belong to projects that are not saved in the project folder.


  1. Close all projects.
  2. Select File > Cleanup.
  3. Click Start.

    Cubase scans the hard disks for project folders and lists all audio and image files that are not used by any project.


    You can also click Search Folder to select a specific folder for the Cleanup function. This is only recommended if you are sure that the folder contains no audio files that are used in other projects.

  4. Select the files that you want to delete and click Delete.
