Default "Import Session Data" Audio File Duplicates

Hi everyone,

I'm bouncing sessions back and forth between two rooms at a studio so editing can be taking place simultaneously with tracking. I'm using the "Import Session Data" command, hitting "Match Tracks", and then only importing "Clips and Media" so my I/O, plugins, etc stay the same, but all the edits in clips can go from the editing to the tracking session. I realized that under "Audio Media Options" I had "Copy from source media" selected, so it was making duplicates of all the audio files with a .1 at the end (ex: AudioFile_01.1) and doubling the size of the audio files folder. Since then, I've switched to "Link to source media", which takes care of the problem. My question: how do I delete all these duplicates? Is there some sort of command to clean up the audio folder? I can do it manually, but how do I relink with the original, non duplicated files?

go to clip bin and "select" then "unused"
next, "clear" and when the window pops up,
if you're brave and have a back up somewhere, select "delete"
to be safe select "remove".
then file>save copy as
then check the the box "copy all audio files"

then put org. folder in trash (don't empty yet)
and open new sesh to verify everything's there you need.
then empty trash.
