Hi!
I use an external drive (F:) where I save all my NEF files. There is one particular folder (i.e.104), from which I had moved all the photographs, to another folder (“Still Life”), many days after I had imported them into Lightroom (using the “ADD” option). However, though the folder (i.e.104) and the photos are still showing in Lightroom under (F:) in the “Library” module, I was unable to retouch them in the “Develop” module, since I got the message “The Folder could not be found”. Therefore, I right clicked on the folder (i.e.104) and found the following four (4) options:

  • Find Missing Folder
  • Remove
  • Show Parent Folder
  • Export this Folder as a catalog

I chose option “3. Show Parent Folder” and now a large amount of my folders are missing under (F:) in the “Library” module.

However, all these missing folders are visible under (F:), when I click “IMPORT” {except the folder (i.e.104)}

But the folder (i.e.104) and its photos are still showing under (F:) in the “Library” module only. Now, when I right click on the folder (i.e.104) I get only three (3) options (Same options as shown above except option “3. Show Parent Folder”)

Please let me know how I can restore the missing folders, to be shown under (F:) in the “Library” module once again, so that I can work on retouching them.

I trust I have presented my problem clearly. Your immediate response would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,

Vasantha Jayasooriya
