A little detail. I store my video files and Camtasia projects on OneDrive. When files have not been touched for 30 days, they will be set to cloud-only automatically to save space on my local drive. What I have noticed is that when Camtasia launches, it seems to access the files from all recent projects, and not just the tscproj file, but all the associated media files. This has two major impacts to my workflow:
1. The last accessed time stamp on my video files is constantly being updated every time I launch Camtasia regardless of whether I am using those files. Even projects I haven't touched in several months won't become cloud-only due to this behavior.
2. If I have manually set some files to cloud-only to save space, Camtasia will start downloading the files through the OneDrive sync process. These can be multi-gigabyte files that eat up my bandwidth and take up space on my drive.
There is no reason for Camtasia to touch these files unless I actually open the project. Can the behavior of Camtasia be adjusted so that it doesn't touch all files in recent projects at startup?
This also happens with Dropbox files that have been set to cloud-only. And it happens when I open a project directly or launch Camtasia without selecting a project.
