    Partially.

    1. Don't paste all the unnecessary crap (HTML-entities of Unicode chars above).
    It should look more like this (just as example):

    Long Name Main File Library
    Short Name Main
    Internal Code Prefix
    Parent Directory
    Access Requirements
    Access to Sub-directories No
    Sort Library By Directory Index Position
    Clone Options
    Export Areas...
    Import Areas...
    File Directories...

    2. Now that you've pasted the library configuration, please paste the
    configuration of one of the problematic directories and the relevant error
    message(s).

    You also said you "import the areas" but didn't clarify, import from what?
