"The sheet format could not be located"?

So, here is my problem.

 

I create a new file, select a template and the file gets created with the right format. Everything is good so far. However when I create a new sheet the format cannot be found. (Error message: "The sheet format could not be located")

 

My file path is correct, I have tried reloading the sheet format on the first page and then adding sheets, I can manually find the .slddrt file and when hit okay and the Sheet Format/Size window pops up I can hit browse and it shows up right away.

 

When I browse for the template and load it in there is no problem but when you have to do that for every single sheet in a 10-40 sheet file it can get rather annoying and really interfere with workflow, especially seeing as this is a new problem (We recently restructured our drive)

 

Is this perhaps a naming issue? There are 3 other sheet formats saved in the same location, is that a potential cause?

 

Ref for things I have tried already:

Any ideas?
