I'm running the most upto date PremierPro on a MacBook Pro running OS X yosemite. I built a project with material on "DriveA" and need to open a copy of the project on a cloned drive, "DriveB". When I launch the copied project it shows me the OLD path to 'DriveA' and will not search on 'DriveB' for the same footage. When I hit search, it starts looking through my applications folder and never gets to 'DriveB'. What step am i missing because my film needs to be shuttled between two mirrored drives. Thank you,

If you click Search a second time, then it should search for the next match across other locations and drives. If for some reason that still does not work, try manually going to DriveB and selecting the first clip for relink. If "Relink others automatically" option is checked in the main Link Media dialog (which it should be, by default), then it should automatically link the clips from that drive location.
Thank you for responding. After trying all recommendations I tried deselecting "Use Media Browser to locate files" and it work exactly as it should, after I pointed it to the first file on "DriveB". Thank you for responding. This is a good one to remember for future requests. Peace, M

Can you disconnect Drive A when you launch the cloned project? That way even if it doesn't find it you can just relink. Failing that you could temporarily rename the folder where the rushes are stored on Drive A so premiere wont recognise it and then when it asked to relink, relink to Drive B.
