Default Re: Imported audio not moving into audio folder

Has this been solved because I have the problem very often when I import from old Sessions?

Find the audio you wish to import and copy it into the session folder for the destination session and import from the new location(or even copy directly into the Audio Files folder before you import into the session).
3-once you have done as you have been doing, go to File>save session Copy, check the box to copy all audio and save(now you have 2 versions of the session, but at least the "Copy of" version will actually have all the audio in it
I must've screwed with pro tools preferences now everything I edit gets greyed out. pro tools is able to copy imported audio into the session's audio files folder but it won't duplicate those new regions. As a result nothing gets created now in my audio folder and the clips list gets full of all these greyed out audio files. You can only imagine, the task manager at the beginning of every session now looking for these greyed out regions with no audio files.
Take care brush your hair,
