I'm having a little bit of trouble trying to connect the Project Library to Resolve. The downloadable files provided seem to have been updated since the course was uploaded. For context, similarly to what's shown in the course, I try to connect the folder 'editing-in-davinci-resolve'. But when I select the folder and click Connect, it immediately kicks me right back to the Add Project Library menu. Am I trying to connect the wrong folder or has the workflow changed since?

For further context, I'm using the free version of Resolve and 'editing-in-davinci-resolve' is NOT in an external hard drive.
