Link Media window not showing all missing media

I imported an old FCP7 project into PP and was surprised how well the old project came through! There was a lot of media that needed to be linked so I went through that process. After linking half the files, I wanted to see how the project looked at that point so I clicked Offline All to leave the link media window (thinking I would return to finish the project later). When I later oopened the project, only a small portion of the missing media showed up. I can see the missing media in the status column of the project but I'd like to see the original Path the missing files came from because they refer to different folders on different hard drives.

 

Any thoughts? Should I have selected cancel in the Link Media window instead of offline all to keep the missing files active in the window?

Right click on one of the column headers in the project panel and choose "Metadata display..." Then search for "Media File Path" and enable it. This column may show you the original file path but since it's come from FCP, who knows!

That works, thanks for your suggestion Mike!  I also found that if I set a keyboard shortcut for "Link Media" then selected a missing file in the timeline , followed by that keyboard shortcut, all the missing files - with their original location - showed up in the "Link Media" window. For some reason, if I just select the missing file in the timeline and right-click "Link Media" it only brings that file into the "Link Media" window.Go figure!
