How to stop Logic creating project sub-folders?

    Hey Guys,

    Wondering if anyone knows a way to stop Logic from always creating these subfolders:

    Freeze Files
    Sampler Instruments
    Samples

    ...I always save Projects in 'Folder' format rather than 'Package' and the only box I check is 'Audio Files' as far as keeping assets with the project... yet in the Finder, Logic always creates the above folders and they are never used.

    Not the end of the world, it would just be nice to reduce clutter and have only relevant files in a project folder for organization's sake.

    Thoughts?

    I just ran a test, and with only the audio files box checked, it only generated the Audio Files folder. IIRC the Freeze Files folder only gets generated after you freeze your first track.

    I suspect it's a corrupt pref file.

    Interesting - thanks Rob. I keep a clean copy of my prefs file but it goes back a few subreleases - I'll try trashing prefs and rebuilding them in my current version and see if that helps.

    OK, with totally fresh prefs, Logic still creates a "Freeze Files" folder within project folders, even though I don't ever use the freeze function. In fact, I've never used that function in 25 years of Logic use. Weird...

    It's not a bug, unless we both have it!

    So does that mean you have this issue too? For whatever reason even with fresh prefs, Logic still creates all 3 unneeded folders for me no matter what I do!

    I have seen this issue at times where it saves sub-folders I did not ask it to save.
