Reveal in Finder not working

I received a drive from another Editor with a Premiere project and fairly massive amount of media (11.5TB). I’m unable to right click and “Reveal in Finder” on any of the media within that project. It’ll take me to the correct hard drive, but somewhere arbitrary on that drive. The project was created in CC2019, but this also happens when I open it in CC2020. I’ve tried creating a new project and importing the old project. I’ve tried deleting the cache and I’ve also forced spotlight to reindex the drive.

 

No other Premiere projects on my system are exhibiting this, so I don’t believe there’s anything wrong with either versions of CC2019 or CC2020 that I have installed. If I search for each file by name, Finder is able to locate the file on the drive, so I don’t believe the Hard Drive or Operating System are the issue.

 

Anyone have any similar experiences or workarounds?

happens to me all the time in windows.  rarely if at all on the mac.   If you get the properties for the clip, does it show the full path for the file?   Wondering if there could be an issue with the formatting on the drive.  Is it something other than macosextended?  Maybe it would be a good idea to run disk first aid on the drive and drive warrior if you have it.  Another thought, I had a very complicated documentary project that had been started at least 10 years before in finalcutpro.  Whenever I had a crash, fcp7 would lose the connection to most of the media and it was a royal pain manually reconnecting (but I did get really good at it).  The problem turned out to be that there were folders within folders within folders within folders and I suspect that there is actually a limit to the number of characters in a file path.  Anyway, I bit the bullet and reorganized the drive and the problem went away.    Just found this from googling.  https://discussions.apple.com/thread/250275651
