BUG: Importing folder structures from Finder (macOS) fails to create matching bins
I've been given a drive with a Footage folder, within which are six subfolders for each shoot day. Each folder contains Sony F7 footage from one or more cards, but the folders are not set up identically. Some have the data as expected, some have that nested within an XDROOT folder, and others have multiple cards, within which are the XDROOT folders. But at the bottom level, each folder structure is identical. However, when I either Import or drag and drop the Footage folder into Premiere, all the footage is lumped into one Footage folder, but one folder 'Day 4' remains. This is totally counter-intuitive and completely unhelpful and it makes it completely unclear where the footage has come from. I suggest you do whatever it takes to exactly mirror the structure on the drive. Screenshots to explain:

Ought to add, this is in PP 13.1.4, on macOS 10.14.6.
