Can I shorten a master clip to make hard drive space?

I usually like to go through clips when capturing and not import excess, but when I'm in a hurry I just import all clips and use what I need.

I know about subclips but that doesn't free up hard drive space.

Can I just remove excess from a master clips so it doesn't take up unnecessary space?

Thanks,
Paul

better yet you should media manage your sequence. that will make a new sequence with everything offline, and a list of just the clips actually used in the cut...

I was told that media manager can be risky to use. That it was fine for making backup copies but I'm kind of scared to delete the original file if I just have the media managed copy. I guess if I try the new copy and some files work, it should all be fine?

Sub clip the portions of the master clips you want to keep.
Media Manage the subclips, copying them to new files.
Delete the old master clips once you are sure you have all your new clips.
