Project deletion

Is it safe to manually delete projects from the /opt/Autodesk/projects folder?
I have 63G of stuff in there which does not show when launching Flame, (all versions selected).
Neither do they show in the project.db.

Hi Paul,

Are these projects from a old version of Flame that was uninstalled and projects archived?

Before you start deleting things in the file system, check with Autodesk support to see if there are any steps.

I normally advise people not to do this as the potential corruption is quite high.

Good luck.

Randy has outlined what you want to do. I have heard it called blatting the box. Just wiping the stone & projects but keeping the flame app around in a clean state.

There is a process in place for cleaning project remnants up that should not affect existing projects or media/installations. If you open a support case to address this, you can reference knowledge article 000324569.

In general I wouldn’t touch anything in opt/Autodesk/projects manually.

Hi Grant, yes old projects from previous versions, also not showing in the project DB.
