Rar files not reading xmp edits in Bridge

For a few years now, we have been having on and off issues with Bridge reading some of our camera rar images from one computer to another computer. The Camera RAW edited images seem fine on OG computer but once opened in Bridge on another computer some of the file's edits do not appear and image revert back to their "out of camera" form with all ratings and labels removed. 

Not sure if Bridge can not see the XMP's or some premissions are not allowed. 

If they are opened again in Camera Raw on "new" computer, it opens a unedited rar then proceeds to overwrite with new data when saved. We've tried purging cache several times on each computer, adding to file handing and reset settings / workspaces as seen in similar posts but nothing seems to work. 

We have this issue pop up a couple times a year so it's hard to pinpoint what the issue is. We usaully have to work around the problem and run the images seperatly from the respective computers they were edited on. Which is time consumming and annoying when running/editing 1000 images, then having make sure your edits have sticked. It's now becoming impossible while telecommuting in 2020 and working on seperate computers is essential.

I really would like to know if anyone else is running into the same issue. We work with both Nikon & Canon files and do not use Adobe Lightroom. We usaully work from primary folders on external hard drives while using Bridge & Photoshop with NIK software extension.  Also update when possible.  

 

I think I've posted this topic before but must have been deleted. 😕  (update: Thanks A-hole, who marked as spam. No wonder I can't get any real answers ... I need help and will keep posting)

You have "RAW" files not "RAR" files.

Edits are written into XMP sidecar files. You MUST keep those with the originals. Your alternative is to convert the RAW files to DNG format where you don't need an XMP file.
