    ...I've been converting my uni work from VHS to DVD using a Canopus ADVC110, Final Cut Express HD and Toast 7. Gone thru about 23 tapes until I nearly maxed out my 250GB, so burnt my stuff onto DVD.

    I roughly had about 190GB before I started, now tho I've only got 51.85GB in my HD.

    I've deleted the folders which had the converted footage. I'm sure I didn't save anything in FCE and Toast!!! :confused:

    Anyone know that I'm doing wrong?

    Probably a stupid couple of questions to ask but have you
    a) emptied the trash
    b) re-booted the machine

    I ask a) simply because I always forget to do that myself and suddenly find a ton of rubbish there, kick myself hard and tell me not to do it again.
    and b) because I don't know if toast happens to use the temporary folder.
    Periodically, the /tmp folder will be emptied but you can force this early by just re-booting.

    Did you get rid of the stuff in the Capture Scratch folder?
