So Im working on ripping all my blu rays to my hard drive, using my mac mini and a 3tb external hard drive. This is probably a simple question, but being as Im teaching myself how to do all this plus work/upgrade my mac via youtube, I haven't been able to figure a definitive answer yet. When I rip a blu ray using makemkv, currently Ill save the large file to a folder on my external hard drive. Once its complete, Ill take the file, say roughly 25gb, and use handbrake to convert and store the final product. My question is, when I finish and go to delete the original large makemkv file and trash it, does that permanently erase the 25gb file or does that still take up room on my hard drive? If it does, is there a way to permanently erase it completely. **bonus question, my makemkv 30 day trial is fixing to expire. Do you have to buy the program after that, or does it just continue?
