Do you ever get that stupid error that tells you that you cannot record to a drive that you have recorded 838398 songs on? Think you need to trash your drive right? Nope, it is a very simple fix! First thing is  trash the Digidesign Databases Folder. Go to the Windows menu and then select Workspace. Under this menu is a list of drives, next to each drives name is a letter under the column A(for Audio). Select T for Transfer, P for Playback or R for Record. You can set any drive that you do not want to ever record on to(System or Backup drives) to a T and Pro Tools will never record to it. To solve the problem of recording to a drive simply select R!
