Like many of us we are running into HD space issues at somepoint. My question is once APP creates master files (dark,bias,flat) am i able to delete the raw image files? Doing so will free up tons of space as sometimes i take 50-75 of each and if i can delete them all the better.

Yes you can. Once you have the masters and you have tested them, there is no need to keep the raw images.

I have a folder with a calibration library: MasterDarks (for several exposure times, MasterFlats (per telescope configuration) and one Bad Pixelmap. I make new masters every season (new Flats when the camera has been off the scope) and keep the masters labeled by season. Works for me.
