Hi everyone,


I have a Macbook Pro with a 250GB HDD. I work alot with iMovie and have in excess of 50 projects. I can no longer export finalised projects into Quicktime format due to a lack of disk space (only 2GB remaining)! I don't have any music and very few pictures saved on the HDD, so I'm asuming it's the movies.


My question is, how do I make space? Do I move all finished projects, ie, videos that have been exported and uploaded to YouTube, into the trash? The .mov files don't appear too big, each averaging between 500mb and 1Gb, but the iMovie project files are large as are the iMovie events files.


Once a movie is finished with, what's the best code of practice for maintaining disk space?


Many thanks in advance,


MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)
