Proxy File Path not updating, generating duplicate .pek files

I started a project on a Drive A ("Current Projects")

  There is lots of media and proxies attached.

I then open it on Drive B ("FC B"), relink all the missing media, including proxies.Everything works as it should.


I then close the project and re open it, and the Missing Media dialoge opens back up, with all my proxy files missing. The file path is still pointing to Drive A ("Current Projects").


I re-link it again to Drive B ("FC B"), and this loop keeps happening.


This has been a bug for quite some time, through several versions of Premiere going back to at least 2020.


Also - every time this happens, it is having to recreate all the .pek files for the proxies (which bogs my system down for hours because this is a feature project with hundred of files). I am saving my pek files next to original media - why is it not recognizing that?


You can see that it has created 11 duplicate pek files for the same file.


Extremely frustrating to sit through this every day.
