Hi

I've been doing some housekeeping after watching the LR Summit. And part of that was moving/renaming folders within LR.

All seemed to be responding perfectly until I reached the folder hierarchy attached. Each time I go to rename the folders within my Bath folder, I was merely intending to remove the doubling up of the word Bath [Note: I'd previously done this with my Bristol folder without issue], but as you can see when I rename the folder the question mark appears.

Note on attached screenshots: Although it's not obvious - as I highlighted the incorrect folder in the screenshot [apologies!] - I renamed Bath_Feb_09 to Feb 09 and the question mark duly appears.

But I can't quite work out what's going on, as the folders appear still contain the images. So, it's like LR has lost the folder [e.g. should I err and rename it outside of LR], and yet seemingly hasn't.

Anyone know what's happening here? Thanks.
