Last week, I updated my mac with the latest version of Adobe After Effects 2020. I still kept the CC 2019 version installed just in case I had a difficult time opening my files. Now when launching either CC 2019 / CC 2020 version of After Effects, I cannot open any of my previously created after effects files whatsoever. I am getting the error message: After Effects Error: File Exists but couldn't be open for reading: "FILE NAME.aep" ( 3 :: 0) . At this point I really have no idea what to do to move forward. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Had this problem for weeks and this fixed it!! Thank you so much
Now Media Encoder can't read AE's archives to export...

I too have this problem and its affecting my career and reputation as the longest edit in world history. Adobe has no idea the ramifications when these things happen and just how it affects people. Its costing me this entire job. Which I just lost. I racked my head searching for answers for the past 9 days. Too little too late. However Id still love to hear from that amazing Adobe Team. Im kidding obviously. Not amazing. Can anyone please for the love of car payments, rent and insurance please, get your heads out of your butts and help solve this Adobe. Bunch of monkeys
Windows user, with the same error mesaage as stated above.
Yes l'm on Windows to and having a similar probably with AE and BRAW files!!! Basically once l open up the project l get the error message of "File exists but couldn't etc etc." I then hit the enter button and l get another error message related to the same file saying "Unable to open file F;\(directory path): If the file is opened in another application, closing it may resolve the problem" I hit enter again and then AE moves onto the next BRAW file and l have to repeated the same thing for every BRAW file in the project. The files are still linked in the project but l have to do this EVERY time l go to another window be it Windows File Explorer, a browser etc.
Same thing happening to me. I'm on a fresh intall of Windows with BRAW footage too. Using BRAW studio from Autokroma. OS, Adobe and Braw studio all at the latest versions as of 9/1/20. I have never had an issue like this, and it is annoying as hell. Got on this, Adobe.
Same here. Adding my voice onto here so that Adobe sees how much of an issue this is. My problem is with BRAW files as well. Thankfully my project only needs a handful of clips, so I only need to mash enter a few times to get around it, but his is far from acceptable for a program I depend on for my career.
Same problem. Adobe, you need to do something, please !
