    Create your new Project. This will create a project folder with a single bin named after the project name.

    Now make a backup (on USB stick or similar) of the old Project folder complete with all thats in it.

    Now go to the old project and copy all the .avb files to the new project folder.

    Open the new project and check all the bins are as you expect them to be. Any folders you created in the old project to organise bins will need to be recreated.

    If all ok you can delete the old Project.

    This won;t alter any media stored on the system and if the new Project has a different projhect name then using media tool you won;lt see any media created in the old project listed under the current project.

    MC creates media flagged to the Project name it was created in. Not a big issue but can cause complications later when and if you need to do media management.
