    Library module Missing ("?") folders: Can't "Find missing folder..." or reimport images

    My two cents worth...I recently renamed a parent folder, which contained a dozen or so subfolders. As soon as I clicked to change the name of the folder, ALL of the subfolder went 'missing'. I clicked on each subfolder individually and all but two did reappear when as I clicked on each one...

    Library module Missing Folders

    First--I was successful in finding / moving all the missing images, (except one, see below...). FYI, the system would not allow me to move (drag and drop) the images into "2 Arizona going" . I got an error message saying the file names were too long. I was successful with the renaming of...

    Hello...I suspect the question, above, may have gotten lost in your busy schedule....?

    Library module Missing Folders

    OK, that makes sense. I'll run "Find Missing Photographs" again. Thanks! Here's a Second Problem: I have a folder containing 26 images, some of which are missing (the folder itself is not missing). In the screen shot, you will see a meaningless file name 1YZBEY~H. This a folder whose name got...

    Library module Missing Folders

    Hi again! In preparing to move Lightroom (and all other data) to a new computer, I began following the instructions in Adobe Lightroom - Moving to a New Computer. I used the instruction "Find Missing Photos" and Lightroom found 67 missing images. I've come up against several problems in...

    Library module / Top level folder

    I must humbly confess that the simple operation of shutting Lightroom down last night, and reopening it this morning seems to have cured the problem. Sometime in the middle of the night this possible solution occurred to me and, sure enough, this morning when I opened Lightroom and went into...

    Library module / Top level folder

    Thanks for your reply, and here's the latest information: I decided to go into Collections this morning and check to see if there was any difference in speed. I discovered that I had missed about 160 files that still had asterisks in their titles, so as I renamed each file one by one, purging...

    Library module / Top level folder

    I do back up my catalog each time I exit and I have 'test integrity' and 'optimize catalog' checked. I've had these three commands checked from the time I began using Lightroom. I discontinued the use of Collections a few years ago due to the wait time after each task I performed. I didn't...

    Library module / Top level folder

    OK...thanks for the explanation on editing in Collections rather than Folders. I agree with the logic and am convinced...EXCEPT... (Cletus helped me with this self inflicted problem): I had used asterisks in a ton of folders and got bitten big time when I upgraded to Monterey and the latest...

    Library module / Top level folder

    Thank you Victoria and Y.K. Below is the screenshot taken after 'hiding' the Parent folder / If this is what it is supposed to look like, then all's well! (And thank you for the additional explanation). I have another question: Recently I requested and received very valuable help with a...

    See screenshot...how can I move all the contents from the folder "/" into the folder "Library"? Thanks, Kathleen

    Library module Missing Folders

    I think I've finally gotten all my folders and images 'found' and named correctly! I thank you so very much for your help and patience! "Thank you" hardly seems adequate, though...the forum is SUCH a valuable resource for non-technical folks like me! I have further questions, unrelated to this...

    Library module Missing Folders

    Here is my latest problem in trying to get the images in the (corrupted? unlinked?) folders relinked to Lightroom: I'm working on a folder named "Y 49 Death Valley Apr 2021". There are MANY folders with an asterisk in the folder title, which has caused almost all folders and images to go...

    Library module Missing Folders

    Cletus, I apologize once again....all I have to do is drag the contents into its corresponding folder to remedy it! I was so upset about the entire "Canada" folder going missing after literally spending two full days reconnecting them that that I have been in panic mode and not thinking...
