Default "save session copy in" audio file name shortening

Hi there.

I have all my audio dotted over 25 drives.

When i want to get all the audio for one particular session in one place i "save session copy in" and tick the "copy audio files box".

When i do this, the new audio files have lost the last four characters of thier file names. (in my case ".aif")

This means other sessions that were linked to the same audio files cannot link to the new audio files until i manually type ".aif" into the file name. Then it works fine.

Is there a way of getting protools to stop truncating my filenames?

Thanks for listening.
