I have a large track that I want to cut up into pieces but save a copy of the original track.

I make duplicates, rename them, move the duplicates to other folders etc. Cutting up one route still cuts up the renamed duplicate.

What am I doing wrong?

Sounds like BC is trying to outsmart you. I think it prefers to maintain copies of the same route, track, waypoints in different folders, but they are all the same.

I split and combine tracks a lot in Mapsource. I first copy the track to the clipboard. Then I edit, rename, and OK the track. Then I paste the original from the clipboard back into my work area.

I think I have also done this in BaseCamp. As long as you have a copy/paste feature, it should work.

IIRC, don't make dupes, make copies.
