I have two programs that are basically free to me and i am a very beginner editor and probably wont get heavy into editing, but i was wondering if there is a program that does not save all these pesky "index files" (see pic below) or if there is a way to delete them easier because it is super time consuming to select them all and delete them when there are sooooo many. <BR> <BR>the program i use most is Pinnacle studio 10 (i think) and sometimes i use this AVS Video Editor 4, but it crashes on me sometimes so i stay away from that one, though i can't remember for sure if it too has these "index files" that save automatically <BR> <BR>P.S. i do not use Mac... but maybe i will in the distant future when i make a decent amount of money to switch (or just buy a new computer in general) <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87667/709085.jpg" alt="Upload">

each PAIR of these index files are about 5 KB which can really start to add up

further down there are some 2nd, 3rd, and even 8th copies of these things. "Copy(8).avi...." those i was able to select in sequence and found out that they totaled 3 MB. this is just one of the editing projects i have done

well i think i just answered my own question/ concern about the COPIES. the copies were being made when i ever so slightly moved the mouse while clicking the files while holding ctrl to select multiple files. oops. but i still get frustrated with these indexes anyway
