Save Copy In/ Delete Unused Regions - smaller sessions for mix

Im trying to scale down the size of my session folders for sending to my mix engineer.

When I Save Copy in with audio files
Open the new session from new folder
Select unused regions
Delete regions
click every pop up box for each region

the session is still bigger than the original.

original: 2.36 GB
save copy: 3.31GB
after deleting unused regions from copy: 2.47GB
PTHD 8.1.1

how is this possible?
also is there a key command to delete regions without seeing 100+ pop up dialog boxes?

I would recommend you select the remove unused files before you "save copy in" (make sure its remove and not delete to be on the safe side)

once the original session is clean then do your save copy in

this has worked for me every time

if you hold down option and click on either remove or delete, you wont get the 1000 pop ups.

Good luck!
