A quick question 
Since I use Photoshop CS 6 and I own a D500 Nikon, I have to use Adobe DNG converter to process my raw files.
My question is this, After I convert all the raw files to DNG files, can I delete the original Raw file. I figured why have 2 files on my drives taking up that much massive amount of space.  
Thanks so much for your response.

Disk storage is pretty cheap these days. Personally, I would never ever ever delete the original file of a RAW file that I intend to keep.. Not everything that is in that file can be transferred to DNG and there may come a time when you regret that decision. It's just not worth it in my opinion.
