    Reconnecting footage

    Hi all,  been away from it for a while, hope everyone is well and frisky. I have some MXF footage from an old project and i think the hard drive path needs to be updated, as it is showing as offline. Seems like I remember deleting a small file in the "1" folder, then re-starting Avid and the footage was re-connected to the correct drive number/pathway. Could someone clarify this for me so I can get this footage to show up. Thanks and HT!

    Make sure you have the Avid MediaFiles folder at root level and then the MXF folder inside that and then numbered folders inside that.

    Those folder names have to be exactly correct.

    If you delete the 2 database files Avid shoukd rebuild them on launch.

    It's Avid MediaFiles>MXF>1

    Root Level of any drive

    Whatever you drop there it should be recognized.
