moving pro tools sessions to an external drive

Greetings~

I've been using Pro Tools for about 6 months now and have been saving our sessions to the internal drive of my 2018 Mac Mini. Now I'm rethinking that decision and want to move the session files to an external SSD drive. How can I do this without losing any of the necessary interconnections between ptx and various support files? I've read that moving the session files can be a tricky thing,,, or at least it used to be tricky.

Thx for your help!

"Save Copy In..." - be sure to check "Audio Files" in the subsequent dialog. You can double check by going to the session browser ("option-o"), sort by path, and it should be obvious if any files in the session are not on the correct drive.

Or you can try "Save Session AS"

I would be tempted to just open up both drives and copy everything over folder by folder. And then double-check of course.

Save Copy in -as described above- is the safest and easiest way to do this.
