Can I delete old "autosave vault" files?

Hi there

I am looking to free up some space by deleting old files.

I have many version of my current project in the Autosave Vault folder. Am I able to delete all of the older versions and just keep the latest one without messing everything up?

Thanks.

-Patricia

I'm pretty sure that you can, however you may not save a whole lot of space. I just looked in my vault and there are a total of 407 files which take up 157MB disk space (less than 400KB each). Clearing out the whole thing would give me enough space to capture....... 50 seconds of video! (more or less)

Yes you can but as Boyd said you don't save a whole lot of space by doing so. I keep mine just in case and it has saved me more than once.
