Hello all,

Recently Illustrator has started duplicating the same image when used multiple times in the same document, but only if I work off my portable drive. Attached is an example of what I'm referring to. Left is when I save on my local HDD and package the file, Illustrator treats the same image (even though it's used multiple times) as one base image. But if I work off my portable drive (which is 99.99% of my work) it duplicates the image several times, once for every linked instance (right side). I've looked at my settings and online and can't find an answer. Help?

 

Thank you in advance!

For some reason I can't edit my post, so I'm adding that I am using the latest version of Illustrator (25.1) on a Mac running Mojave (I'm keeping it for now since a program I use won't run on more recent versions of Mac OS). I'm also embedding the issue below so no one needs to download the image file.
