the file does not exist
Adobe InDesign CC 2019, pagina inizio, impossibile aprire i file presenti nella cronologia: "il file non esiste, è usato da un'altra applicazione oppure non disponete delle autorizzazione necessarie".
It looks like you may be trying to open files that are shown on the Start screen but are unable to do so.
Please check that the file(s) actually exist at the same location as when they were previously opened/created. If they have been deleted/moved/renamed, etc., the Start screen will continue to show their thumbnails but you won’t be able to open them.
Let us know if this is not the case.

I'm having the same issue with Indesign 15.1.1.
I have an AI file linked into my INDD file and both apps are ON. Any time I update the AI, Indesign plays dead. If I ask Indesign to update it (using the Link menu), its return the following message: "Either the files does not exist, you do not have permission, or the file may be in use by another application". So let's analyse it: Yes, the file do exist, yes, I do have permission and yes, it is opened on Illustrator. About this last one, having a file linked into an app and both apps ON is a pretty common workflow, not only between AI and Indesign, but among ALL adobe apps.
I have the same issue ..
other CS programs do not have the issue .. and have checked and rechecked all permissions in System Prefs, file info ..
- File EXISTS, Permissions all GRANTED, and NOT in use by any other App .. and NO other reason for it not to work ..
The files open as normal, when opened from the finder - just the dialog /recent files from within the program do not work.

Upon launching InDesign, I'm prompted the startup page with my most recent projects. When I click on any of those projects I get a dialogue box that says, "Either the file does not exist, you do not have permission, or the file may be in use by another application"
The files have not been moved or modified. When I go up to the menu bar at the top and do File > Open Recent and choose the same project there, it opens just fine.
Any reason it would be doing this?
I've got thee same problem, in particular when I try to open a book-file, It is very important that you try to solve the bug.
this was not the case. the files were in the same folder in which they were created and saved.
after several tests, i found that if the name file contains a special character (for example /), the file in the history page doesn’t open; if remove the special characher the same file opens regularly.
can you verify and possibly solve the bug?
thank for your attention,
