Default OMF files in "save copy in"

I'm backing up as session to an external FW drive, select "audio files" (session format latest) with 48k/24bit WAV as the default, but the process takes ages and the resulting folder contains OMF files - and it's huge.

The only OMF content in the session is a narration import, done with "copy from source media" on.

PT HD 10.0.1, Mac OS Lion.

Any ideas why this is happening?

When you originally import from the OMF you always want to force to target session format.
Having individual audio files is much better than 1 giant OMF, IMHO.

* Just realized the OP is 3 years old! .... oh well, still good advice I think.

Ah ha, thanks Kasper!

I stumbled across it in another thread too.

Still getting used to Pro Tools moving from Logic.
