I'm not sure why, but AE is shifting its links to some of my linked files, namely PSDs. I import a file normally, position everything, then when I go to render, AE has replaced sometimes a layer, sometimes the whole thing, with another file in the same directory. I've been able to work around this bug to a certain extent by saving items in separate directories, but it doesn't seem to take much for this annoying issue to creep into them as well. Anyone have any advice? Thanks!

That's really, really strange -- and I imagine highly disturbing. I've not heard of that before.

Have you perhaps imported the files as image sequences instead of images?

Are you up-to-date on your version of AE? Outside of AE, have you tried scanning the disks for errors?
