Bridge does not read the XMP files in some folders

I just came across a something weird. For some reason Bridge is not reading the XMP sidecards of RAW files. I can see that the XMP files are in the folder but they are not recognized. I remember having spent several hours editing those photos some months ago in the same computer using Bridge and Camera RAW. However, the folder where there the issue appreas, the preview images do not get updated and opening photos in Camera Raw do not show the edits in the side cards. What it is even weirder, the XMP files seem to have no information about the edits that I did.

 

What went wrong in Bridge? I do not think there is a way to recover the edits though.

Hi,
thank you for your reply. Sample files are in the attached link (files too
big for email).

I have the updated version of adobe bridge 2022. Today i've checked all my
xmp files in that folder and i've found out that after copying they are
almost empty - like the process of copying deleted all changes i've done.
This is the first time when something like this happened to me. I've worked
with this program for a couple of years and I'm freaked out now. I can't
afford to have this happen again.

Thank you for your help.

Hi @defaultc6uygl0qf8hy 

 

Hope you are well. The original issue you mentioned about Bridge not being able to see xmp files seems different from the one reported later - contents of xmp files are altered. We tried to reproduce them on our end but the edits and contents of xmp were retained properly on copying. We wanted to know a few more things so that it is easier to pinpoint the cause. 

  • System configuration
  • Can you try copying a single affected raw file 
  • Can you try switching your Camera Raw version (14->13 or vice-versa) and see if the issue still persists (Different logic to maintain assets is present in Bridge according to ACR version).

 

Please make sure View->Show Hidden Files is checked.

 

Thanks

Hi! Where those files treated with a previous version of Camera Raw?

 

In order to install another version of ACR, you will need this page: https://helpx.adobe.com/camera-raw/kb/camera-raw-plug-in-installer.html

You can Zip or move the folder with the current version to your desktop.

Nope, I did not solve it. The infomration from the XML files was gone so I could not recover the edits I did to the photos. Very disappointing indeed. I would suggest you to open an XML file with a text editor and see if your edits information is still there. If it is there there might be a way to make bridge recognize the XML files. But if the edits info is not in the XML file... it is gone 😕

Ok Thank you very much.

I had copied about 25 files out of that folder into another one and then
the problem occurred. Luckily it was one of my smaller weddings, about 350
images and not a bigger one.

Thank you for your quick response.
