Since updating to macOS Monterey 12.3.1 Bridge will not read my external hard drive. I can access the drive other ways, just not with Bridge.

Even if you were accessing the HD before, it's not uncommon for you to need to let Bridge access external drives if there's been a system update.

 

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
