Relinking media Broken PP 2022
Relinking missing media takes FOREVER and is not working as expected.
All my file names are unique and organized well in subfolders, but PP is unable to relink media automatically. As soon as one file from a different subfolder needs to be found PP stops looking for other files from the project that is in the same folder.
I'd like to be able to just point PP at the root directory of the Video Source material and have it search until it finds all the files, they are all there. But currently, I have to spend > 30 mins each time helping PP locate the files semi-manually.
This is a HUGE problem when moving projects between different computers where the source is mapped to a different drive!

Further to this - sometimes in PP2022, it says it has found the file, only for it to not be in the folder once it shows you what it's found. The only way I can find it is by using the OS to search for the file, then point PP at the actual subdirectory that the file was in. A very inconvenient workaround.
The file was there, where I was searching, but PP didn't locate it correctly. PLEASE put some energy into removing these bugs and making this very time-consuming issue less of a pain point.
