    Ive just finished a film project and have used a large proportion of my drive (140GB) saving all the captured media and associated files. I have another project on the way, so im needing to clear the drive and start anew.

    But what if i ever needed to revisit my old project and the media ive saved? Obviously i have to delete all the files, but is there a simple solution to creating an easy route to obtain media again from my original tapes?

    Re-linking each individual media file seems like a big job!

    If you logged and captured and saved those clips' info in the project, you could conceivably go back and re-capture from the original tapes if you needed to. Also consider using the Media Manager to delete clips (and parts of clips) not referenced in your final edit, if you're not planning on going back and changing anything. You can usually save a fair amount of space (depending on how much material you didn't use) by doing this.
