    Storage Problem, hard drive is full, how do I move files?

    I started editing and was very happy to remember some of the Avid transistions. However, I have all my footage loaded and the time line is made...I now ran out of C drive space...I have only 13GB left. How do I move my Avid Media Composer footage to an external drive unit and delete it off my C drive? Thank you in advance for taking a moment to help!

    It is fairly simple. Close the app. In your C drive, there is a folder labeled "Avid MediaFiles".

    Copy the entire folder to the root section of the external drive. Launch the app. It should automatically relink everything.

    ok, what happened was the file copied over with exception of the large media files, all those that were 20gb...the entire file was 313 GB, only 8.5 copied over. What went wrong? The external drive has 2TB and Thnak you for responding

    your taget drive needs to have NTFS or exFAT (not recomended) format  to allow large files.
