I'm not sure if you have specifically mentioned anywhere in this thread that you have done all of the pro app updates. Please confirm that you have run the Software Update app and that no Pro App updates are showing up as needing to be installed.yes mark but only after i noticed problems. originally i had my own settings. i did the migration thing out of pure desperateness.
And what do you mean exactly by "throw tracks in the trash"? This is normal behavior for discarded takes. It's a fail safe system built in to Logic to offer one more layer of last ditch recovery.
If they are being recorded into the trash that is another matter. Your record path is somehow corrupted. I would try trashing the Logic prefs at that point if it repeatedly happens on freshly created projects.
