Dreamweaver - ALL file associations lost?

I am working on a 2019 Mac Pro OS 12.7 and DW v.21.3

 

This is the first time I have launched DW since upgrading all my other CC apps this week, so I am not sure if my problem is associated with that?

 

I have about 100 clients' websites that I manage with DW and my worst nightmare just came to pass. When I launched DW today, the Files window in DW which usually lists ALL my websites just opened to the top level of my hard drive and says "computer". So it apparently has lost its pointer to the location of all my previous website files (including all the server settings, etc.). I have not had a hard drive crash or anything, so all my files should still exist, but how/where to I point DW to find whatever it needs to re-link the previous associations?

 

HELP!

I've moved your post from Creative Cloud Desktop to the Dreamweaver forum for you.

Sites and other settings are not lost if you sync your settings to Creative Cloud.  Simply import them and restart Dreamweaver.

Nancy,

 

It looks like "Enable Automatic Sync" was not selected on my machine. I have selected that now and clicked "Apply" and closed DW. Does that mean a copy of my settings are now saved in the cloud?

 

If that is the case, is there any reason why I should relaunch DW and now choose "Import Sync Settings"? Or is that just redundant?

Unless previous settings were synced to cloud, there is nothing to import.  Sorry.

 

If your settings are auto synced now, you can import saved settings into other laptop or desktop devices.  Your Creative Cloud license allows activation on 2 devices concurrently.
