    External hard drive crashed

    last saturday one of the external hard drive containing current projects crashed.
    No backup, of course... There are between 2 weeks and 3 months of repair (maybe) but I have to finish some projects.
    Who would have an idea allowing me to finish my edits? I can't do Consolidate since the initial disk is no longer there.
    In the meantime, I recovered the rushes on another hard drive. But how do you tell the software to connect to the new drive?
    Curiously, the "Relink" function worked with the sound rushes!!! But not with images...
    Otherwise, I think I'll have to re-edit all the plans one by one and "by hand"... but it's a monk's job!!!
    As the problem must have happened to a few editors, maybe you have a solution that I haven't thought ?
    Thanks in advance for your help...

    Thierry (sorry for my english...)

    If you managed to get relink to link sound then I presume you have a copy of the sequence you need to work on?

    If you have the sequence then it should be possible to re-connect the source media.

    If you don't have a sequence then you don't have an edit.
