    Media Tool weirdness

    I just used Media Tool to delete a project and media, had all 3 options selected (master clips, Precomputes, media files) and all drives... selected all items that populated from the media tool window in MC, then deleted them... the Media Tool window is now empty yet all the clips are still online. WHAT? Went into media tool again and did the same thing out of curiosity and no media populated the window at all. I picked a random clip from a bin and did a "reveal file" and it shows up as being in one of the mfx numbered bins as usual.

    I checked all other projects to make sure nothing was offline and everything seems fine. MDV shows that same project and media (60+GB or so). Anyone have a clue what's happened here? I'm totally stumped :-\

    Try deleting all you media databases. Then when Avid has reindexed all the drives try the Media tool again

    Alternative? Use MDV to delete the media
