Hi

I have removed all images from my harddrive C:
There are zero images in C:, so I want to remove it from the Lightroom Folder list.
Is that possible?

Thanks! But maybe I didn't describe exactly how I meant.
I want the entire harddrive removed from the folder list.
The one below:

Thank you!
That solved it and now I have more space in the folder list.

I now have the same issue - but there are no folders on the drive to be removed.

Interesting -- when I remove the last folder under C: in my test catalog, the C: drive disappears from the folders panel. You could try resetting LR's preferences:

LR sometimes soils its preferences file, and resetting it can fix all sorts of behavior, sometimes in situations that completely surprise me. The article explains how to restore your old preferences if it doesn't work.

That's odd. When I remove the last folder from a drive (even the C: drive), that drive disappears out of the folders panel. I suppose you could add a folder on that drive to LRC and then remove it. Perhaps that would trigger LR to do the right thing.

Thanks, Hal! Super helpful..
Lightroom did the right thing - C: drive is now gone.
