Since installing LR 10.3 I am having problems linking to my photos which are on my internal HDD. I still have the previews but LR tells me that the "original file cannot be found. I can find the file using Finder but when I try to open it LR displays a message as follows: "The file xxxxx.dng is associated with another photo in the catalog. Each file can only be associated with one photo"

How do I re-link to these folders??

You must have at some time reimported these photos. Using the text filter bar, search for one of the missing files by file name "7M7A3674.DNG". You should come up with two files, one with a valid path and one "missing" You will need to remove one of these duplicates from the catalog.
