Why Materials always randomly disconnect

Hello, may i please ask, WHY the materials always do disconnect ? what is the reason ? the project is being modeled on my own pc, i mean what is the problem ? the reason for a Material to disconnect ? let's say a Texture well, maybe Maya lost it and forgot it's location, but Material ? and what is the solution ? please no youtube videos for help, they don't help

Most common reasons are some modeling operations such as bridge or booleans (Bugs not fixed yet)..applying materials to faces  and definitely saving a file with history which should be avoided .

Also wrong display of instances in the viewport often related  to graphic cards but the object

will still render correctly.

Sometimes I've seen with referenced files as well.

Thankfully these issues can be fixed easily.👀

Yes the bridge tool is still broken in 2023.3 and despite being logged Autodesk keeps forgetting to address it and maybe they never will.

To easily fix the  missing green shader just reaply the shader again.👍
