File pathing problem, things aren't where they say they are

Hello everyone, I'm having a problem where the file viewer on my computer and in Maya look different. Because of this, I can't find project windows I need to access, so I can't find my source images, textures, etc... The reason why the files are in Adobe Creative Cloud is that I need to be able to access projects across different computers. How do I fix this? I didn't have any problems until I moved the projects to different folders.

Does it work if you use the Windows Explorer instean of the maya one?

There is a setting in the prefs to use the windows explorer.
