Is there some way to identify used footage  in Explorer/Finder from Premier Pro? I realise that I can remove unused clips from my project but I would like to be able to easily identify and delete unused footage from my computer.  I'm thinking that being able to pinpoint used …and then by process of elimination unused footage might be the way to do this.  I could ‘reveal’  each used clip individually from the project panel but it's not very efficient.

Thanks for this answer @Ann Bens 

But this only remove unsued clips from the project. And I think it would be very usefull to identify those unused clips in Explorer as well, in order to free some space from the HDD. All those "out of focus" and other "trashable" images which will never be used, but will take space for ever on our disks.....

Might want to read the post again.

Second option in the screenshot deletes unused media from the hard drive.
