I copied a file into a new folder with all the parts as well. I did a pack and go but the file is still suppressing parts. Am I missing something?
Just guessing and may be completely wrong, because I very rarely use pack and go, but I am thinking if you simply "Copied" all the parts and assemblies to another folder and did a pack and go from there, the assembly information would probably still be pointing back to the file location that the assembly and parts were in before the move.
Is it suppressing the parts in the original file locations or the ones where you moved them to and then did the Pack n Go?
First I copied and when that didn't work I did the pack and go. Neither method worked.
Did you do a pack and go to do the copy? Or did you copy a bunch of files into a folder THEN do the pack and go?

OK, to clarify.....did you try to do the pack and go on the thing that you copied? Or on the original files?
On the original.
I usually use a FILE>SAVE AS> & then make sure to include & select all referenced parts and save it to the referenced folder with or without renaming it. If it's an assembly with the drawing do it with the drawing & select all the references. Also if you have toolbox flagged parts that need to go make sure to tick the box to include those as well.
Please check your dismissed messages in SolidWorks. You probably have the one for Internal ID is different enabled so you're not getting the prompt for the file to accept it. There is a possibility of other dismissed messages in your setting blocking it from resolving as well.
