Since downloading the latest release, EXIF data will only save as a side car file, not to the original file as in the past.  Any ideas?  in the past the EXIF data that would be added either in Bridge or Photoshop would write to the original RAW file, no it doesn't, only as a side car file.

Not true. EXIF is always saved to the file.

What are you adding that you think should be included in the EXIF data?

XMP sidecar files have been uised for years for saving edits and other data added to RAW files.

Perhaps your issue is to do with the recent deprecation of the Camera Raw database.

 

"The option to choose Camera Raw database to save image settings is deprecated. Image settings are now stored in XMP sidecar files or within DNGs. You can view the DNG settings under File Handling in Camera Raw Preferences."

Thank you Michael Bullo, It looks like this is the reason for my issue.  this doubles my workflow time since I need to add all the information to each file before I save it after I edit it, where as in the past I could write the info to all the Raw files in one batch process and not have to worry about doubling the number of files, this is the same issue with DNG.

 

Thanks's for shedding light on it.

Thank you. Happy to help.

 

It is possible to simultaneously open multiple RAW files, make changes to one of those files and then synchronise those changes across all of the other files. Could this functionality help you out? Bridge may be the best place from which to open the files.
