Feels like a silly q but I somehow changed my whole library to proxy media even though I'd only created it on the last external hardware I was using. Now it says missing proxy for every clip and relinking doesn't work... I can see it all there in the optimised media folder feel like I'm missing something :unsure: :unsure: help??

You can't relink proxy media, but you can rebuild it.

As FCPX.guru said, relink for proxies is not available. The volume name where the proxies were originally generated is burned into the library, and this cannot be edited or changed, even using a SQL database editor on the tables within the library. Short of rebuilding them, your only option is rename the drive the proxies are now on to the original drive name.

There is an undocumented method of manually copying Finder aliases within the library's folder where the symlink pointers are. This will sometimes force a relink of proxies but it is not reliable, esp. if the drive name has changed: "Cheating Final Cut Pro X proxies...using aliases": www.fcp.co/final-cut-pro/tutorials/1828-...ant-by-using-aliases
