Michael RosingHow to keep M100 from linking footage in wrong folder?

I have many projects which reuse some media elements.
For backup and organization, I've duplicated these elements, and each project has its own folder with everything that project needs.

However, when opening 'project a', for example, Media 100 will nose around and link to some of the footage in the 'project b" and 'project c' folders.

Is there a way to force Media 100 to ignore certain folders when opening a project?

One possibility would be to partition my storage, put each project media folder on a separate partition, and dismount the unneeded partitions, but that's cumbersome.

I'm using 7.5.1, and have HDe on order.

Any ideas?

You could turn off the "relink Media" function and add the "correct" folders manually. Otoh I don't see a problem in accessing the "wrong" files or folders.

Thanks, Floh.

A possible problem with using the wrong folders is that if I perform a 'delete unused media' it may lose files from other projects.
