Storage space

As I mentioned in class on Thursday night, and as others have pointed out, storage space has become a significant problem and will halt production altogether if we don't deal with the issue.

So, here's what needs to happen by tomorrow:

1) EVERYONE needs to login to both capture computers (the two closest to the printers) and delete any of your movie-related files that remain on the desktop.

2) Space on the new media server is also running low, and we're going to run out of space as people build movies and slideshows for the final project. Again, please go into your folders on the new media drive and delete all of the movie files that you created for the first four issues. As long as you keep the Final Cut project files, you will be able to recreate any old movies, if necessary, by reinserting your raw tape. (You, of course, will still have the compressed movies that were uploaded to the website, as well.) It is the uncompressed .mov files, however, that each take up hundreds of megs. Delete them.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks.
