I’m working on a PC in Windows 10. I’m using the latest version of Adobe CC 2022. I’ve tried to open old Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Indesign files and have found that I sometimes have lost necessary fonts and images for those files over time. Can anybody share a practice to deal with this problem going forward instead of repeating the font and image in every file / folder?

PostScript Type 1 fonts are deprecated. Replace all PS Type 1 fonts with new & improved OpenType fonts.  See below for more details.

Also upgrading computers over the years requires migrating Font files from old systems to new ones.  Have you been doing that all along?
