Relinking to backup drive?
on Sep 16, 2019 at 6:29:29 am

Hello!

I finished an offline edit, but the hard drive containing the 4k footage I linked into Avid malfunctioned. I have a backup hard drive with all the 4k footage, but I can't figure out how to relink to it. At the top of the relink window I selected this particular drive but it didn't work. Can someone, for the love of God, please help me. Thank you in advance!

-Stephen

Just treat it like new footage you want to link to.
Create a bin,go to the drive, depending on folder structure you might have to go a folder level or two down, and use media browser to start creating your links. It should be the same process s your original linking from your original drive.

Once complete you should see your original links are now back online. (You kept your original links right?)

Hey Glenn, thanks for the reply.

Yes I still have the original linked files in my bins. I'm sorry I think I need it broken down to me like I'm a five year-old. The process I was doing was right-clicking on the sequence and then clicking "relink". What exactly is the way you're saying to do it?

Thank you,
Stephen

Are your original linked clips online or offline?

Ok, so get them online. Do what I wrote in the first post. Treat this like you have a brand new drive you want to link to. Create a bin, and link to the files using the source browser.

Once those are in, your original links should also be online. Avid will now know where those files are living.

Then try to relink using the selected items in open bins method. Well documented in these forums.

Here is one example here.
