- Last time I had this error message, I clicked yes, and when my project opened all of my media in my VERY LARGE Premiere project became unlinked. It was a nightmare relinking everything. How do I get around this?
- My theory as to what caused this was that I reset all of my scratch disk preferences (media cache, waveform, etc) to go onto an external harddrive instead of my main harddrive on my Macbook Pro which it was originally set for. For some reason it doesn't seem to be able to remember that it was set to the external.
At least on PC, this is usually caused by using a different drive letter than when you set up the scratch disks. Likely the same applies to Mac.
What is the location that you have chosen for your Scratch Disks? I normally locate these in the Project hierarchy, and obviously on the same disk as the Project.
As Harm mentions, if one has unlinked Assets, it is a sign that the original location has changed.
As for your Scratch Disk location being Write Protected, we'll need more info, from the question in the first paragraph.
