Could not create New Doc. Too Many Levels
I hope this is an easy fix Here is my error message.

Could not create a new document because Too many levels of symbolic links (62) while creating "session name here"

I totally deleted Protools off my mac. Then reinstalled everything. Everything was working great then i got this error. I tried deleting the prefs first. Then i deleted everything. All prefs, plugs, everyfile i could find related to Digidesign and Avid. I downloaded everything and reinstalled it. Still the same error. I have no symbolic links everything is installed on the local hardrive.

MacOS High Sierrra
Universal Audio Apollo twin
Macbook Mid 2015

Re: Could not create New Doc. Too Many Levels
i fixed it. When i had Location selected as the place to save the document i got the error. When i switched it to prompt for location protools loaded fine. So, I selected location again but changed the folder to a hard drive and it worked. I switched it back to the Users/yourname/documents.. I got the error again

This is apples fault. Thats my story and im sticking to it.

Re: Could not create New Doc. Too Many Levels
Don't think it's an issue with Macs per se. I've run into a similar issue with PCs. Basically, there's a limitation of the numbers of characters (letters/numbers/punctuation marks, etc.) you can have in a series of folders and subfolders. Therefore, if your folder has a long name and then you have subfolder with a long name, etc., at some point the operating system won't let you add a file to the end subfolder because the total path has two many characters. Sounds like what you're seeing here.
