I keep my images in folders on my external Hard Drives. Adobe Bridge 2022, Version 126.96.36.199 shows theexternal Hard Drives, but will not show the folders on the hard drives. I run an iMac with Monterey 12.0.1
Bridge 2021 works fine.
Has anyone else had this issue or know of a fix?

When you updated your system, you need to update the permissions for the applications on your hard drive. So it's back to the Security and Privacy tab in your system prefs.
Go to your System Preferences and select Security and Privacy (found in the top section). Now click on the Privacy setting (last tab). Now click on the lock on the bottom left and provide your Administrator code. Now select the Full Disk Access option and click on the "+" symbol. This will bring up the standard Mac Open window and let you add any application you want or need to have full access. Look for Bridge, select it, it will now appear in that window and make sure it's checked. Next, go to the Files and Folders option and do the same thing as above (although there's nothing to check, just add. Close everything down and see if that makes it all work.
Please let me know
[Note: these images are from an older OS, the process is the same.]
That Works! Thanks for the clearly described solution.
I've just downloaded the new Bridge 2023 update and the most recent PS update 24.0.0 yet can only see PS listed in Full Disc access although both appear in Files and Folders. So, I can't access files on my external Lacie drive from Bridge. Any suggestions besides downloading an earlier version?
I solved the problem, had to add it to the Full Disc Access list from my apps.
just did the same, added manually Bridge 2023 and authorized full access, but it doesn't work, all my favorites located on an external SSD disapears after a reboot. I thinks it began to happen after I upgraded may System to Ventura.

Hi, @octone75, if your now on Ventura, things are a bit different.
Please try this:
Go into the System Preferences and select the Privacy & Security tab on the left. Note that there are two options on the right you'll need to deal with: "Files and Folders," and "Full Disk Access."
First, going into Files and Folders, note that in various years of different releases of Adobe Bridge, different needs are needed. I do not know why this is, but it's always better to check and make sure that just because you did it for one release, you may or may not need it for a subsequent release.
Lastly, go into the Full Disk Access option. If you do not see your application in the list, click on the "+" symbol at the very bottom of the window. This will bring up a standard Finder window. Navigate to your Applications Folder, find Adobe Bridge, and add it to the list (You will need to add your Administrator's password to do this.). Then you can "switch" it to the "ON" position.
This should solve your problem.
Please let us know if that works or not.
