Bridge CC 2018 no longer recognizes external drives (but Lightroom CC does).  Worked fine yesterday after doing all updates, problem occurred after system restart.

Bridge is a browser, so it should recognize any drive that is mounted, but not drives that aren't mounted. Lightroom uses a catalog, so it will show drives it has cataloged, even when those drives aren't mounted right now. Could that be the explanation?

Thanks, valid explanation but still doesn't explain why Bridge doesn't recognize my mounted drives.  It is a problem with bridge and its compatibility with MacOS.  Did not have the problem when installed, only occurred after a restart.
