Why is georeferencing not working?

I'm having some problems georeferencing some .tif. In fact, when I finish adding the GCPs and save all the georeferencing process,  the image doesn't retain the spatial system information. If I save the GCPs and add them again to the image they move the image in the correct position but as soon as I close the Georeferencing, the image goes back in an unknown coordinate system.

Something odd is that I was able to georeference several files before this problem occurred, out of the blue, even though all the files are the same. The files are maps in .tif format.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to solve this issue? Or what could it be due to?

I already tried to delete the .tfwx, .aux, and .ovr files. 

I'm using ArcGis Pro 2.8.0

Thanks a lot

Are you following this procedure?

Georeference a raster to a referenced layer—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

and do you have Pro set to this in the options, raster section?


... sort of retired...
