Hi, I've been having this occur for months where on occasion i'll open an AI file and i'll get a warning upon opening that says it can't find the linked file but it's always the same message and there are no file names for the images....just "" as the image name. There are also no file names in the Links tab so I've had to throw out files and restart which is obviously time consuming if I can't figure out which files are missing. Not ideal. Does anyone know a workaround on this? I'm running V24.3 on High Sierra OS. I can't update as I have a 2011 iMac so if it's an OS issue then i'll just have to avoid using images in AI going forward.
I am having this same issue. Like Adam, this is happening with multiple files, for about a year now, and my linked files are also on dropbox or onedrive, but stored locally. I'm on Windows 10 and I haven't done anything major in the last while. It happens over and over again, even within the same day after I've relinked everything again and then re-open the file later in the day.
