    Hi! Sorry for missing your issue on the forum. Let's try to get it fixed here!

    I suppose by "PC" you mean windows, since PC just means personal computers. Quick question:

    • "but when i plugged it into my main machine" How did you plug the Windows computer or should I say hard drive?) to the Linux computer?

    Sometimes, when you set multiple times the file path, you create the wrong file path in... the wrong file path. You end up with a double Megascans file directory. Can you verify this for me? I'll comment below with how it should properly be setup file-wise to work correctly.

    • Are you using a NAS or other network system to link both computers?

    i am just using a portable 2tb hard drive to connect everything. i have everything set up under a quixel folder in it and its worked fine in the past but when i moved it from my Linux computer and used the same directory it was insisting that i re download everything

    Could you screenshot the Bridge file path settings on Linux and the folder directory + its file path as well?

    The issue persists in Bridge version 2020.2.3.

    My solution to this:

    1. Close Bridge
    2. Rename the 'Download' folder in the Megascan library, for example, 'Download_old'
    3. Open Bridge, a new 'Download' folder is created automatically
    4. Move assets from 'Download_old' to the 'Download' folder, few at a time or the ones in need.
    5. Wait a couple of seconds to a minute, then reload the bridge by press Ctl+R, or simply reopen Bridge.
    6. Assets should appear now.
