  • Details panel (on the right) – displays detailed information on the Cinegy products generated files.

  • Statistics panel (at the bottom) – represents the correlation between file types by space used by them.

The bar graph on the top of this panel represents the correlation between selected and available files, generated by Cinegy products and stored on the local storage, where the green part of the bar stands for selected files and yellow part – for remaining, unselected files. The bar graph display how much space can be freed on the machine after removal of the selected files:

All files generated by a particular product or files of a certain type are listed below the bar graph in a table view displaying the corresponding details: file name, space used, creation date and file location:

To make cleaning up of the generated files more convenient, use the filter to define the desired time range in the corresponding drop-down list:

older_than_list
