Not sure how to describe this. Lightroom shows one folder for 2022. Finder shows two. I would like to correct this, as it is throwing off my Pureraw 2 plugin. Thanks!

Right-click on the 2022 folder in Lightroom and choose ‘Show Parent Folder’. That will show the extra folder in Lightroom too. Apparently what you have done is select the top 2022 folder during import, while you should have selected its parent (Imported Photos). Now that both folders show, you can drag and drop the sub folders into the top 2022 folder to correct this. Do this in Lightroom, not in the Finder.
