I've been exporting master tracks and now I've reached a point where the tascam says, "master track too big". how do I free up space on the FAT partition?
If you NO LONGER NEED the songs/data in the FAT partition, you can delete the entire contents thereof in the manner detailed below. Note that these instructions were taken directly from the Neo manual.
1 With the transport stopped, from the DISK menu, highlight FAT REFORM, and press YES/ENTER.
2 A pop-up message appears.
3 Ask yourself once more if you want to erase all the data on the FAT partition. Press YES/ENTER to continue with the operation when a pop-up appears, or press NO/EXIT to halt the operation.
4 When you reformat the FAT partition, four directories (folders) named WAVE, SMF, BACKUP and UTILITY are automatically created. These folders are used for audio files, Standard MIDI Files (SMF) and backup data and system utilities, respectively.
...this will reformat and thereby EMPTY the contents of the FAT partition and create the 4 new, empty files as listed above.
THINK before you do this though, and I hope this helps.
