How do I delete proxies?
« on: November 05, 2019, 03:31:03 PM »
Just wondering what the procedure is if I create a catalog with proxy images, then decide later I don't need them. Don't see any way of removing proxies from within PM. Is it safe just to go into the catalog folder and manually delete the contents of the "proxies" folder?

Make sure to quit Photo Mechanic Plus first.  Delete the proxies folder and everything in it.  Then create the proxies folder again (it should have nothing in it.)

On startup, a new empty proxy db will be created.  If you don't want new proxies, be sure to turn off proxy generation in the Catalog Management window.
