Default Pro Tools 12 can’t create a new session

Pro tools 12.3.1 suddenly stopped be able to save or create a new session, it just locks up, the only way out is to Force Quit. This happened in the middle of editing audio when trying to rename a clip.

When creating a new session, the new session folder is created with a session file in it but it’s data size is zero and there are no other items in the folder.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled three time but it is never fixed.

Mac: OS 10.12.5 Processor: 2.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon 10gb Ram

Default Re: Pro Tools 12 can’t create a new session

First troubleshooting step should always be to carefully trash prefs. Start at “help us help you” up the top of every DUC web page. Reinstalling Pro Tools should be far down the list (and doing that does not trash prefs). What happens when you do that?

Be sure to try creating a new empty session not from a template.

Make sure your session is being created where you think it is not say on a removable drive (make sure you are really looking at a new session). What file system is on that drive?

If still stuck try creating a new Mac admin user account and log into that and try creating a session there (just in that users home folder on the boot drive). Create a new empty session not from a template and trash prefs again before trying.

Still stuck... What else changed? Installed or updated plugins? MacOS automatically updated?... do you have a system backup to recover to?
