I have PR 2020.5 (22.214.171.12431) on Windows 10.
I have some Nikon raw files in a folder which I edited. After judging in a competition I wanted to go back and re-edit a photo so I made a subdirectory called alternatives and copied the camera original jpg and nef (raw) file and the .on1 file (with the same name as the raw file) to it. I know I could have created a new "version" but this is what I've done for years.
When I open the raw file in the alternatives directory up none of the edits show up. The .on1 file is 52K in size and I've looked at it an editor and it seems to be a big chunk of JSON and looks ok e.g., the filename is correct and there doesn't seem to be any embedded paths in it.
However, if I go back to the original directory above and open the raw file my edits show up. This suggests to me PR is not loading the .on1 file and is perhaps retrieving the edits from a database so as I'm working on the same files but in a different directory the database entry is not found.
Why would PR not be using my .on1 file. I've done this dozens of times in the past and it worked. It suggests if I move these files I'll lose my edits.
I looked in the log file and there is nothing obvious (just full of on1 365 cloud events) and a few entries like this:
2020-10-21 14:21:41 ON1 - ********************** Opened file cullercoats_35_2020_07_02.NEF with ONPhotoRaw
which is the file I'm working on.
I've double checked that when I copy the files to the subdir that they are identical to the originals; I even diffed the two .on1 files to make doubly sure. The interesting thing is when I open the copy in PR afterwards, click edit, see no edits and return to browse, the .on1 file is now slightly different to the original (some sort of checksum changes).
