Logic 8 "Optimize Files" in Logic Express 7 ?

    I'm using Logic Express 7, and I came across a reference to the "Optimize Files" function in the user manual. I'm assuming it would be located somewhere in the Audio Window's local menus, but I can't find it anywhere.

    Does anyone know if this function is anywhere to be found in Express, or is it just a feature of Pro? It would be handy to be able to delete the unused portions of audio files, so I could free up more disk space.

    Thanks for any help.

    its been awhile since ive used 7 or express but look in the audio bin and see if you can "save region as" then once all your audio is edited you can save all the used regions as new audio files.. delete the old regions/audio.. and youll only be left with the smaller edited files.. make sense?.. bit laborious i know

    Cool, that works! Do you suppose there's any loss of quality when you do this?

    Thanks!
