Media Files Repeatedly Unlinking

I'm working on a project, and, in an effort to save space on my Mac, I'm transferring all of my media clips to a USB; I've linked the files, in their new location, and anytime I save and close the project, I reopen it to find everything has unlinked.  What is going on and how can I fix this?  

It's extremely tiresome, and, even though it usually would re-link files stored in the same location automatically, it's not doing that.  So I liteerally have to relink every single file individually any time I close the project.

 

I'm using Premiere Pro CC version 15.2.0 on a Mac running Big Sur 11.5.1

Hi Sue_Zan404,

 

Sorry to hear about this. Is this happening with any specific project or all the projects? For testing purposes,  please try moving the files to any other drive/location on the internal drive & relink to that. Restart Premiere Pro/reload the project & check if it's remembering the last location.

 

Thanks,

Sumeet

Sumeet, I have the same problem.  Imoved all the media off of my internal hard drive and on to an external drive. Whenever I restart Premiere Pro it loses its link to the external drive and I have to relink everything again. Is there a way to get Premiere to remember the last location?

What's worse is that when I relink one AE composition, another one has to unlink. I'm working on a drive and have already cleaned the media caches of both programs. Any solutions?

Are you able to assign your external drive to a fixed destination? E.g. the X, Y or Z-drive? I can imagine that PPro does not know where to look for the footage. Although I have a similar use case with some of my projects that have not been linked to fixed destinations...
