Using Adobe Premier Elements 12 w/Windows, after creating the movie I would like to retain only the files that are necessary in order to reduce the size and clutter of files.  Assuming the movie is finished and will not be further edited, is there any reason to retain the.xmps, .log, and .prel files?

If you are happy with the end result, you can delete everything.  Most people choose to keep their source files, but those are not needed to play the final result either.

Thanks.  I thought so.  I keep the clips, but nothing else other than the final movie.
