Summary0009032: Remove unused peak and state files
When regions and plugins are removed, the peak and state files associated with them remain on disk, wasting space.

Full story:
To create a slimmed-down session for a bug report, I removed all of the tracks, regions and sources except one from an ardour session, and all of the plugins. But there were still hundreds of files/folders in the peaks and plugins directories, which were also copied over when I saved as...
The files are mainly not very big, but it all adds up. And there were multiple copies of soundfonts in some state folders (is that a bug?), which add up quite quickly.
TagsNo tags attached.

What's the problem, search entire drive or location for *.peak files and delete them. Ardor will rebuild the necessary peak files.
