Hi. I am working on a video project via an external SSD hard drive. Elements is stored on the internal hard drive, but the project and all media files are stored on the external drive. I usually backup my projects to another drive, a HDD one. But that one is currently full, and I bought a new SSD one, to use that one instead for backup. I accidently bought an internal drive, but put it in a chassi and thought it would work as an external drive just fine, as the people on the web told me.

 

But: ever since yesterday, when I copied all the 900 GB worth of data from the old drive to the new one, something has happened with the two now identical projects on BOTH drives. Every media single file has now gone offline (and as a side note, my Ableton projects can't seem to find my plugin folders). I have tried to locate them separately BUT: I have files from four different cameras in four different folders with separate names, but the files themselves share names, there are four versions of file 00001.mts 00002.mts etc, so it feels like it is impossible to restore the project this way and get it right.

 

WHY DID THIS HAPPEN?? What to do? PLEASE HELP!!!!

It could be that your operating system assigned your externally connected drives different drive letters so that your computer doesn't see them as having the same link locations.
