Random error "You do not have write access to the directory where this project is located."

At least once a day I will get the error when I try to save a project that states, "You do not have write access to the directory where this project is located. Select 'Save As' from the file menu to save the project to a new location." Not sure why this is happening as it will be saving fine one moment and not working the next. Everytime I have simply ejected the drive and reconnected it and it starts working again. I have already gone into system settings and given premiere full disk access to everything, and I also have custom access under "sharing and premissions" on the drive so I don't think it's that either. Also, after this error occurs when I go to my drive it appears empty as all the folders and content are gone. But ejecting and reconnecting fixes that problem too. Is this a problem with the drive, or maybe my computer? I edit on a 2022 Mac Studio.

Since the drive appears empty when the error occurs, it's likely an issue with the drive - nothing to do with Premiere.

Try opening Disk Utility and running First Aid on the drive. You could also try some third-party disk checking software if you don't have any luck with Disk Utility.

Is it a USB powered external drive or does it use an external power supply?

If USB, the USB port may not be supplying enough power to it. Using a 'Y' adapter and the power of two USB ports may help.

Hello, Version 24.5 is already available, it might be worth updating to the latest version to see if this problem has been resolved.
