When it's about transferring a session to someone else, or archiving it, there's a much simpler option : select all tracks and choose : "save selected tracks as new session" in the "Files" menu.
PT will then give you some options, like keeping the main playlists only, or convert audio files into some other resolution/sampling rate on the way ... and you'll get the same result : a clean session with only the needed audio files and playlists, but it does it automatically !

Not sure if anyone (Fab :) is still reading questions here but well... wouldn’t duplicating the original session folder and actually removing the clips when getting rid of duplicates instead of « save copy in... » achieve the same result AND keep the original files ID ?
