NAS Volumes - LR 3.5 & 3.6

Apr 11, 2012 2:57 AM

I have a seperate catalog for client related images that has recently changed the way it shows my NAS drive under Folders. It used to show up like this (but this image is from another catalog), i.e. the name of the volume on the NAS would show up with the green icon and info about available space.

But now it shows up like this, i.e. a link to the NAS drive but listed under my local drive and only available space info for my local drive.

Just upgraded from 3.5 to 3.6 but that made no difference

 

Has anyone seen this before?

    This should do the trick:

     

    • Back up your catalog (for your own peace of mind!)

     

    • Work your way through each top level folder in turn (/, then Volumes, then... etc), right-clicking and choosing Promote Subfolders.

     

    • Keep doing that until all of the folders have disappeared from Lightroom's Folder panel.

     

    • Hold your nerve (this is why you backed up first!!!) and restart LR, and they will reappear as proper drives again.

    Actually, the credit goes to Victoria Bamptom (The Lightroom Queen). I remembered having seen a similar problem before and dug out a post of here over at lightroomforums.net.

    No I don't, unfortunately. Seems to be a Mac only thing, as I've never heard it happen on Windows.
