Noob Question About Changing a Project Name

Recommended Posts

Hello Folks--

I probably should know this answer already, but here it goes...

I started a CW project with a working title. Now that the track is taking shape, I want to change the project name. Once I do, how do I safely remove all of the duplicate files that exist under the working title?

As always, thanks!

Use Save As with  "Copy all audio with project" to create a new project in a different folder

Verify the new project is what is expected

Delete the old project folder

Just to add, you should always have backups stored to a different drive as well. Never delete ANYTHING that does not have a back up.

No, "Save As" to a different name in the existing project folder effectively renames the project (although the original project file  will still be in the folder). Alternately, the project folder/file may be renamed at the OS level.
