  • Help…Relinking to Back Up External Hard Drive

    I have been using a 6TB G Drive 3.0 USB external hard drive to edit my two hour documentary film for the past two years. Have edited on Media Composer 8.4.5. I have just finished the project and last night the drive fell off a two and a half foot table crashing to the floor. At first the drive was still functioning but I could tell something was wrong because my sequence playback was off. I opened DISK UTILITY on my MAC Laptop and ran First AID. A message came back and said it failed. The drive will no longer mount.

    I will be trying to recover that data. I have backed up my files on an identical drive. I’ve hooked up the back up drive and have been trying to relink my sequence as well as individual clips. Am having zero luck. Can anyone help?
