SW 2020 complaining it cant find 'Lost' Files saved internally to an assembly

I have an assembly file with several internally (to an assembly) saved parts that SW 2020 is 'looking for' and is prompting me for the path for them - But they have never been saved externally and are still showing with the '^' against them in the tree.


Kind of annoying - since my assembly is now missing most of its parts - any clues on this one?


Its not for work - a personal project for a community group I am a part of - and I can recover some work from a Dropbox snapshot but its kind of really annoying 


I certainly would not want to encounter this in a work project.  Most of the time I would not save internally but I'm roughing something up and it is a quick and easy way to do it and really thats what the internally saved parts option is intended for...


Anyway - I'll put a support ticket in but was wondering if anyone has come across this  I would like to resurrect the last few hours work I have put in.  I was working in it one minute and then changed to another file I had open which was utilising the base assembly and 4 out of 6 parts were 'missing' from the base assembly.
