Most likely the issue is that very small hard drive. If you've got as much going on as you say, it's likely maxed out. Have you got at least 20-30 gigs of free space on that drive?
It could also be that you've been connected to files on an external hard drive. If you've got an external drive, it may be registering as a different drive number each time you plug it in, and that could be why the program can't find the linked media files.
I had a similar problem with a video project. There is a very good chance that you have one corrupt clip in the timeline and it is causing the error. I cannot explain why but I had exactly the same problem under the same circumstances when suddenly, after a crash, I had random "offline" clips appear in my project.
I backed up my project first to a different project name.
I then deleted the second half of my timeline, and the problem was still there. I then deleted half of the half left etc etc.
Eventually I found deleting a certain section caused the "offline" messages to stop and the clips reappeared. I then isolated it to one clip in the timeline.
I went back to my back-up and deleted that clip in the timeline and the many "offline" clips that were randomly spread through my project magically returned. I then simply saved and next time on opening put the clip back into the timeline. It seems the clip in the timeline was corrupted not the original avi file.
Hope it works for you too.
